Myth 5< Back

There are laws banning the use of domestic cats and dog species for fur in Europe and North America and the members of the International Fur Federation have had a voluntary worldwide ban that pre-dates these laws.  Fur from domestic cat or dog is not suitable to be used in fur coats – there are plenty of well cared for farmed animals bred specifically for this purpose.  The fur trade actively supports all governments to legislate against any mislabelling of fur products and enforce that legislation.
