The Truth About the Dog and Cat Fur Trade: Do you know where the fur trim on your jacket comes from? The majority of fur-trimmed clothing and accessories (even pet toys and trinkets) labeled as “faux fur” is likely real fur, mostly from domestic cats and dogs. It is estimated that more than 10 million dogs and cats (mostly stolen pets and homeless strays) are brutally murdered each year for their fur in China, where there are no governing laws to protect animals. It is 'hell on earth' for companion animals in China, as they watch their cage mates tortured and murdered in the most horrific ways imaginable, knowing they will be next.
The global fur trade takes the lives of over 100 million animals per year, including man's best friend and feline companion. This annual count does not include rabbits, which the UN reports to be at least 1 BILLION killed for their skin every year.
Filmmaker, Kathleen Lowson, brings the dog and cat fur trade, a largely unknown animal protection issue, out of the obscure abyss into the international spotlight. This short film is included in her critically-acclaimed Documentary Film Series, CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can't Speak, which takes a spiritual perspective to this dark subject, so that an awakening can occur from a deeper level of the psyche.
Our films have screened around the globe with international press and groundbreaking television news coverage in China, the world’s largest exporter of animal skins and the mecca of the cat and dog fur trade, breaking through the 'iron curtain' of media control in Asia and exposing the dark secrets of this barbaric trade to the world.
