Fur Trim is a Trap

Did you know over 3 million animals are killed for their fur every year in Canada? Learn the truth about today's fur trade.


Living With Beavers

Over half of the species on Earth depend on the wetlands that beavers create. Despite their importance, beavers are often killed because their dams can cause flooding. We can save them with your help!

Ban the leg-hold trap!

Contrary to popular belief, the leg-hold trap is still legal across Canada. This trap and other body-gripping traps cause intense and prolonged suffering. This is cruelty you can stop.

Dog & Cat Fur Trade

Each year, approximately 2 million dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their meat and fur. It is legal to import and sell dog and cat fur in Canada.
