FUR FREE SOUTH AFRICA
As part of the global anti-fur movement, Fur Free South Africa (FFSA) campaigns for a world free of animal fur products. We work in association with Beauty Without Cruelty SA, the International Anti-Fur Coalition and other animal rights organisations.
Animal fur is found in a range of products sold in South Africa. These include luxury garments, accessories, fur trim, novelty toys and pet toys. FFSA educates consumers and retailers about all the aspects of the horrific fur trade, as well as investigating instances of mislabeling and false advertising. We try follow up on all fur related queries. When necessary FFSA gets fur laboratory tested.

THE NAMIBIAN SEAL SLAUGHTER
THE SHOCKING FACTS
Despite what the fur industry wants consumers to believe, there is NO such thing as humane fur production.
There are many links in the fur supply chain. Live animals are farmed or trapped solely to be skinned for their furs. After chemical processing, these skins are sold at auction houses. Brokers from around the world attend fur auctions and buy on behalf of their furrier clients, dealers or merchants. Fur items are then supplied to retailers. Fashion designers, models and celebrities play a big role in portraying fur garments as desirable to consumers.
Fur Free SA believes that anyone who knowingly supports the fur market in any way is responsible for the cruelty inflicted onto to fur bearing animals. In this age of the internet, ignorance is no excuse.
