I was sickened when I saw a video showing how animals are farmed for fur. They were obviously distressed, in tiny cages. They were turning and flipping in faeces, urine and waste and all so a few selfish and thoughtless people could wear fur – if only we could cage them in the same way that these poor animals are!

It made me look at PETA and I have found some awesome information on them at http://www.peta.org and I think it’s important that we all look at what we can do to help. Today is the second birthday for my two baby dogs – they are weimaraners and are big dogs but to me they are very much my babies. I couldn’t imagine them being held in cages and electrocuted so that someone could wear a fur coat! It makes me feel sick.
PETA has had some amazing campaigns over the years with their most famous being the “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” which started in 1990 and has featured Belinda Carlisle and the Go Go’s, Christy Turlington, Eva Mendes, Holly Madison and many more superstars.
I applaud all the wonderful people for their courage and commitment for this cause, and I hope that you take the time to watch this video and are as moved as I am to make a difference.
