07/06/2015 HUGO BOSS COMMITS TO FUR-FREE POLICY

The Fur Free Alliance praises luxury brand Hugo Boss for phasing out all real animal fur. The progressive decision was recently announced in the HUGO BOSS Sustainability Report 2014 and has been an issue in discussions between HUGO BOSS and the Fur Free Alliance. HUGO BOSS will be dropping all fur, including rabbit fur, from Fall/Winter 2016 Collection onward. Joh Vinding, Chairman of the Fur Free Alliance says: ''HUGO BOSS has become a leader in the fashion world by taking a stand against animal cruelty and ending the use of fur in collections. The Fur Free Alliance hopes other luxury brands will follow HUGO BOSS's lead, especially since there are now so many cruelty-free alternatives that are fashionable and indistinguishable from the real thing.'' HUGO BOSS joins a growing list of fur-free brands and retailers, including Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Zara, and ASOS.

07/03/2015 "WALKING DEAD" STAR LEADS CAMPAIGN FOR "PIT BULL" FAIR TREATMENT

In an effort to dispel the negative myths of "pit bulls", Animal Farm Foundation is spurring a campaign for the dog guardians to come together. "Pit bull" guardians are encouraged to submit photos with their dog to show not only their passion, but strength in numbers. Helping lead the way is actor Jon Bernthal, who stars in a recent PSA promoting the Majority Project. "'Pit bull' dogs don't know that they face discrimination, but their owners do," says Bernthal in the announcement. He declares himself an actor, father, and a proud "pit bull" owner who is part of the majority of responsible people who love this maligned breed. Bernthal and others hold up a sign that reads 'I am a "pit bull" dog owner, I am the majority.' Animal Farm Foundation is an organization championing equal treatment and opportunity for 'pit bulls' since 1985.

07/02/2015 FAROE ISLAND CONSERVATIONISTS FACE TWO YEARS IN PRISON FOR NOT AIDING WHALE KILLINGS

A "draconian" new law in the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic could see Farose citizens and conservationists face up to two years in prison if they fail to report sightings of migrating whales and dolphins to the Faroese authorities, or obstruct the slaughter of these animals in what is known as the "grindadráp" or "grind". While reporting sightings of pilot whales and dolphins has long been a requirement under Faroese law, as of 20 May of this year, anyone who fails to report a sighting could face a 25,000 Kroner fine - just over €3,000. If they then reoffend after the first conviction or if they violate the grind in more than one way, they face two years in prison, the Faroese police told Newsweek. So far, no arrests have been made.

07/01/2015 SINGER KESHA SUPPORTS #BECRUELTYFREE

Pop star Kesha is the latest celebrity to lend her support to Humane Society's International (HSI) campaign #BeCrueltyFree. The video was shot by celeb photographer Robert Sebree, and features Kesha primping for a night on the town using various cosmetics. Surrounded by rescued bunnies, the thought-provoking video asks consumers "Does animal testing lurk behind your cosmetics?" Kesha's addition to the campaign comes just a week after Canadian Senator Carolyn Stewart Olsen launched a federal bill to ban cosmetics animal testing and trade in Canada. It's a huge victory for HSI and Animal Alliance of Canada, which have campaigned hard and held discussions with policy makers in Ottawa and with Canada's national industry association toward making Canada the world's next cruelty-free cosmetics market.
