Yes, I have been living under a rock and had never heard of Fur-Free Friday until this year. Luckily, it’s never too late to speak up for animals, so I happily signed up to go to a local protest the day after Thanksgiving with my big bro, Robert. (Did I mention that this was my awesome family’s first Thanksgiving ever without a dead turkey?! Yeah, it was time to celebrate.)
This was my brother’s first PETA protest, and he came out like a champ! We held signs outside a local mall and got a great response from people—lots of honks and waves in support (one from a cute cop, which was my highlight). A young kid and his mom even asked questions from their car at a stoplight, and then they pledged never to buy fur!
Until the day of the protest, Robert hadn’t heard about how animals are kept in cramped, filthy cages on fur farms or how they are sometimes vaginally or anally electrocuted before being skinned alive for their fur. But now that he knows, he’s as anti-fur as I am!
If you’re interested in speaking up for animals where you live, just contact us. We can send you all the materials that you’ll need to get started!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
