Each year, 40 million
animals, including millions of dogs and cats, are killed for their fur.
Millions more are killed for their skins. Thank you to all who stood with us this
Fur Free Friday, November 29th, telling the public that "fur free is the way to be"!
Educational demonstrations were held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. outside Tsonto's Furs in Mineola and continued from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. outside Bay Shore Furs in Bay Shore, on November 29, 2013.
If you were inspired by our event and would like to get decked out in our new “Don’t Get Caught in the Fashion Trap” gear (design pictured at the top left), please see our brand new shop here.
Thank you for your support!
We've rallied, we've attended press conferences, we've even asked Governor Cuomo in person!
Now we need your help to seal the deal.
Pease make a brief, polite phone call to Governor Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 and urge him to sign A.740a/S.3753a to allow local communities to crack down on pet dealers that put profit before animal welfare.
After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), personalize and submit this form to automatically send a follow-up message to Governor Cuomo.
Thank you for taking this important action!
Compassion Company, a vegan owned and operated clothing company, has chosen LION as their Featured Organization!

"...All our designs feature original hand drawn art that you won’t find anywhere else. Our shirts are made from ultra soft recycled or organic cotton printed with water based and discharge inks to create clothing that is not only extremely comfortable but also minimizes environmental impact. The shirts themselves are sweat shop free, assembled by workers in South Carolina that are treated with respect and provided with benefits such as health, dental, paid vacations and more. All our screen printing is done by hand exclusively by our long time vegan friends at Leave Your Mark Screen Printing in Florida." (Via their website)
Many LION members own their shirts, such as the one pictured here (owned by Vice President Julie Cappiello), and agree they are some of the most comfortable clothing we own! Be sure to check out their designs and help us out at the same time!
