Way To Go JCPenney!!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Center

JCPenney has come a long way in a short time!  In 2006, the department store was one of several retailers at the middle of an HSUS investigation that uncovered deception in the labeling and advertising of fur-trimmed clothing.  Now, JCPenney is fur-free!  With more than 1,000 stores in 49 states, Penney's is the first multiple-location, traditional department store to end all in-store and on line sales of fur items, and it joins the ranks of more than 130 well-known fur-free companies.  WELL DONE!!!!

Kristin, I just read the HSUS monthly newsletter, and noticed someone had thanked them for the alert about "raccoon dogs" being slaughtered for fur.  The comment contained a picture of a beautiful raccoon dog.  It also made mention these dogs are skinned ALIVE for their fur.  I'm still sick to my stomach.  I've seen the PETA videos of minks and fox being stunned and skinned while still breathing.  Still wondering how any human can do this to an animal.  It seems in the world of animal welfare we have taken 10 steps forward and 20 backward, as humans continue to find more ways to use and abuse our wonderful animal populations.

Great news that JCPenny has taken such a huge step!  I certainly hope that all other retailers follow suit.  I don't even like the fake stuff.

Yeah Kristin.  We have a chimp sanctuary near here that takes research chimps.  I'm calling this week to volunteer.  We also have an elephant sanctuary scheduled to open end of this year, I'll be volunteering there as well.   Any little thing we can do to make their lives a little happier eh?

Kristin, nope!  I can't take that credit.  As for Wayne, OMG he is so dreamy.  Tall, and as you know quite handsome, soft spoken.  We had some great times at The Fund For Animals.  Those were my hero days, if I ever was one.
