DSW Inc. refuses to stop selling shoes made with animal fur, despite the fact that PETA has repeatedly explained to company executives that animals on fur farms live in cramped, filthy conditions before they are bludgeoned, electrocuted, and sometimes

What a pity...of course there are consumers out there that actually buy shoes made from fur, I cant imagine wearing some bunnys coat on my feet, that is disrespectful to Rabbits. Perhaps one day they will get educated into realising that its not right.

Thank you my dear friend for keeping up the good work for all the animals!! My comment added to letter: (There should be a LAW that requires the people buying fur to watch as the animals are tortured/killed before you can buy their fur!! I will never shop at a store that supports such atrocities to animals!)

Noted, signed. Thinking about such an obstinate refusal to adopt a cruelty-free policy in the face of facts about how animal fur or skins are obtained, despite the availability of alternatives, I think of a continuous demand -- since there is no supply without demand. Thus, passive resistance in the form of shunning such produce seems like the best reaction to it. Provided that the aspect of compassion falls on deaf ears of some companies, it must be the outflow of customers, and thus a decline in profits, that will be more convincing. Thank you for sharing this and spreading the word, which helps identify such businesses.

Admittedly, I bought an extremely good pair of shoes at DSW, many years ago.

I broke my leg in 1996 and went to a DSW store, about two weeks after a coupon had expired. While, still on crutches, I asked the store manager if he could make an exception to the expiration date, and he told us, that he had no AUTHORITY to make that decision.
This is a perfect example of corporate control, over our population.
Managers, now, can not make any decisions. They are puppets, as are the rest of us.

To avoid DSW, is particularly easy for me.

For the ones who encourage directly or indirectly, the skining alive or dead any animals please do realize the fact that it amount to
for the ones who sell or wear this skin please remember...
# Animals are life too, and have Rights too..
# they have the basic right to be in their own skin just like you
# do unto other lives what you wish them to do to you...
# Strangely animals have never killed or hunted or tortured any other life for their skin... they are content in their own natural skin..

Signed thanks for the petition. WHY on EARTH would you buy fur, at the expense of all those dear little animals when there is so much faux fur around!! ?? Honestly, I sometimes think that people don't know what their brains are for. if they did, they most likely would use them and work out that what they are dong is WRONG!

In this day and age the use of animal fur is n longer a survival priority. More of a vanity tool now, Status of the rich and famous. Sickening.

I really don't know about people anymore.
I've tried to educate my friends about animal suffering in all it's aspects,
they agree, cluck their tongues and two minutes later talk about a great roast they had for dinner and ham is on sale this week (ooooh, I must pick up a couple of them)
Ooooooh, feel the soft fur on my parka . . . . . .
