Fur Free Friday Las Vegas, 2019
November 29, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Each year millions of dogs and cats are slaughtered for their fur in China along with chinchillas,foxes,racoons,seals just to name a few. There are no protection laws for these animals killed on fur farms etc. Many animals are beat to death with sticks skinned alive , suffer for days in a trap, or anally electrocuted. Exporters in China told HSUS undercover investigators they intentionally mislabel the products to make them more marketable. Faux fur may possibly be real fur as well.
This is a public awareness event to educate consumers about the horrific fur trade and the inhumane treatment these animals go thru to become a fur coat, fur trim or fur trinket, all for the sake of vanity.
It will be held on the northwest corner of Spring Mountain Boulevard and Las Vegas Boulevard, outside the Fashion Show Mall (3200 South Las Vegas Boulevard) by Neiman Marcus on the public sidewalk. Please give yourself plenty of time to find parking, as this is one of the busiest shopping days of the year. There is an outdoor parking garage at the west end of the mall and free parking at the Treasure Island Casino across the street from where we will be . Please do not bring pets of any kind as it is very dangerous due to lots of people and traffic etc.
Please do not interact with any passers-by that want to argue. We want to be approachable at all times. This is a peaceful event and in the 17 years that Fur Free Friday has been held here in Las Vegas, there has never been any arrests and the police and security have never given us problems.
