  Take Action: We Need The Dog And Cat Fur Prohibition Enforcement Act Of 2007February 23, 2007 16:26 Dog fur is being sold in the United States on fur jackets that are not labeled. Dog fur is also being sold as faux fur.

Raccoon dog fur is being sold nationwide on jackets that are not labeled. Raccoon dog fur is also being sold as faux fur, raccoon fur, or coyote fur.

Approximately one out of seven fur products sold in the United States are not required to have a label that tells consumers that they are buying real fur, the species, or the country the animal was killed in.

Whatever their stance on fur, consumers have a right to know what they are getting.

Half of all finished fur products entering the United States come from China, where dogs, cats, and raccoon dogs are all killed for their fur, sometimes being skinned alive.

Thank you.
