'Glee' Star Lea Michele Raises Her Voice Against Fur

Golden Globe nominee and vegetarian Lea Michele plays sassy songstress Rachel Berry in the hit television show Glee. One may find argyle sweaters, plaid skirts, and knee-highs in her wardrobe, but one thing you won't see is fur. Lea's latest extracurricular activity is helping animals by speaking out against the fur industry in her PSA for PETA.

Lea gets a gold star for posing with the adorable rescued mutt Sailor in her PSA for PETA. She explains, "Animals used for fur—including dogs and cats—suffer horrible deaths because some people think it's OK to make a coat out of them." The only difference between your "best friend" and animals killed for their fur is the way that they are treated. Foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals killed for their pelts are bludgeoned, electrocuted, and often skinned alive.

In China, which is now the world's largest fur exporter, there are no laws to protect animals on fur farms, and dogs and cats are often killed for their fur. The fur is often mislabeled and sold to unsuspecting customers around the world.

Help Lea and PETA spread the word that there is no reason to wear fur, and pledge to be fur-free!

Pledge to Be Fur-Free!

Full Petition Text: 

I won't support an industry that causes any animal a lifetime of suffering and a cruel and painful death. No animals will be tortured and killed just so that I can wear them. By signing my name, I pledge not to buy or wear any fur.
