Urge International Retailer TJX to Stop Selling Angora and Fur!
TJX claims to "deliver great value to [its] customers through the combination of brand, fashion, price, and quality." It forgot ethics.
The global retailer sells angora in its U.S. and Canadian stores—including T.J.Maxx, HomeGoods, Marshalls, Sierra Trading Post, Winners, and HomeSense—even though it knows that every three months, angora rabbits are dragged out of tiny, filthy cages and their fur is violently ripped out as they scream in pain.
Rabbits whose fur is shorn off don't fare any better:
After a few years of this misery, their throats are often slit.
More than 200 major retailers have dropped angora because its production is so unethical. But TJX doesn't seem to care.
And it's not only angora rabbits who are suffering.
Marshalls, Winners, and HomeSense in Canada also sell items trimmed with the fur of animals who were killed for fashion and home décor in painful, gruesome ways. Fur-bearing animals such as minks, foxes, rabbits, and even dogs and cats often spend their entire lives confined to cramped wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gassing, and poisoning. Animals trapped in the wild can suffer for days from blood loss, dehydration, and injuries sustained in attacks by predators.
Tell TJX to stop selling fur and angora today.
Message to TJX:
I was shocked to learn that TJX is selling items made from angora wool and fur.
Rabbits on angora farms—even the so-called "humane" ones—scream in pain as their fur is ripped out.
Animals on fur farms—such as minks, foxes, rabbits, and even dogs and cats—spend their entire lives confined to cramped, filthy wire cages, and fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available. Animals trapped in the wild fare no better and can suffer for days from blood loss, dehydration, and injuries sustained in attacks by predators.
TJX claims to "deliver great value to [its] customers through the combination of brand, fashion, price, and quality." Please don't forget ethics.
Many major brands—including Gap Inc., H&M, Inditex, Tommy Hilfiger, Topshop, and Calvin Klein—are already fur- and angora-free. I urge you to join them today. Until you do so, I will not be shopping at any TJX stores.
