On November 25, 2016, Last Chance for Animals once again turned Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year, into Fur Free Friday!
The Friday after Thanksgiving 2016, LCA co-hosted the annual Fur Free Friday demonstrations in the Los Angeles area along with a coalition of animal rights groups. LCA was the first organization to hold Fur Free Friday protests in L.A. 30 years ago. Since then, the event has grown into a national tradition, with protests scheduled across the United States.
More than 1 billion rabbits and roughly 50 million other fur-bearing animals—including dogs, cats and foxes—are brutally killed each year for the sake of vanity. The animals are beaten, electrocuted and skinned alive. People are often surprised to learn that fur trim, keychains and other items assumed to be fake fur are actually animal fur, even when labelled “faux.” On Fur Free Friday, LCA and other organizations and activists educated throngs of consumers about the cruel fur industry and urged them from not to buy fur products.
