If you have to be picky about which protests you attend, pick this one from 1:00-3:00 pm at the Petland store at 2123 Old Hudson Road in St. Paul on Sunday, December 21. Help send a message loud and clear that we are not going away until Petland stops selling animals from commercial breeders. Even if you can only come for part of the protest, please try to make it. The animals need you to help educate the public on their behalf. Invite your friends. Help us spread the word. Remember that we do not park or trespass in the Petland parking lot. Parking is available in the St. Paul Youth Services lot to the north of the strip mall. at 1:00 pm

Join Us on Fur Free Friday
Join us in protesting Ribnick Fur and Leather, 224 N 1st Street in Minneapolis, on Fur Free Friday, November 23 from 11am to 1pm. If you agree that the fur industry is cruel and unnecessary, we want you there!
New this year will be anti-fur caroling, with a short, on-the-street rehearsal for those who want to sing during the event. Lyrics will be provided on site, so come ready to sing. You can make a personalized sign if you’d like, but we’ll also have signs and literature available, so feel free to just show up.
If you’re still wearing fur coats and fur-lined hats and gloves, did you know that through our Cuddle Coats program those fashion faux pas can be donated to ARC for a tax deduction? Donated furs offer comfort to orphaned, injured, and abused wild animals and aid them in their recovery at our 14 partner wildlife rehabilitation organizations.
The coyotes pictured enjoy snuggling up in Cuddle Coats donated to a wildlife rehab facility in Nebraska, which says the furs are a more natural alternative to using cloth, which may smell like detergent. “The Cuddle Coats are useful for orphaned animals. They seem to like snuggling into a fur as opposed to a blanket or other items we may use.”
Several local thrift stores are dropoff locations for furs and carry our Cuddle Coats brochure, educating the public about the cruelty of the fur industry. Furs can also be dropped at the ARC office or mailed to us. Let’s make the best of a bad situation for the animals. Please help us spread the word that a cruel fashion statement can at least benefit wild animals in need.
