Thanks to the more than 53,000 PETA and peta2 members and supporters who urged GUESS to stop selling angora, the company announced today that it will no longer sell angora rabbit fur (sometimes called “angora wool”).

To make angora products, workers either rip fur out of rabbits’ sensitive skin as they scream in pain …

… or tie the terrified animals’ feet together and stretch out their bodies before aggressively shearing them.

This process is typically repeated about every three months, and the rabbits are often kept in cramped, filthy cages.

We’re so excited that GUESS made the compassionate decision to stop selling this product, as it causes rabbits a tremendous amount of pain, distress, and suffering. More than 110 retailers around the world, including Gap Inc., Forever 21, H&M, PacSun, and now GUESS, are angora-free!

Spread the word! Never buy any product made with angora, and urge your friends to do the same.
