Praise City for Banning Fur Sales

Target: London Breed, President of San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors

Goal: Praise San Francisco for its city-wide ban of fur sales.

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors all voted in favor of banning fur sales throughout the city. This ban will cover everything from coats to keychains.  This is the first major U.S. city to ban fur and will hopefully inspire more cities to do the same.

It is estimated that 50 millions animals are killed annually for their fur. The animals trapped within the fur industry face unimaginable cruelty daily. They are often abused, neglected, and are crudely killed much before their time. It is not uncommon for animals to still be alive during the skinning process as well. It is a short, miserable life for these animals, but thankfully more and more people are becoming aware of the fur industry’s barbaric ways.

Sign this petition and show your support of San Francisco’s new ban on fur.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Breed,

It recently came to my attention that San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to ban fur sales throughout the city. I was ecstatic to hear this news.

As you are aware, animals imprisoned within the fur industry live short, miserable lives filled with abuse and neglect. They are often confined in crowded, dirty cages with limited access to food and water. It is common for the animals’ injuries and sicknesses to be left untreated which causes even more suffering. I am so relieved to hear that more and more people are learning about these horrors and are choosing to take action, including you and your fellow board members.

Thank you for making this compassionate change to your city. I can only hope more places follow in your footsteps.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
