The truth about rabbit fur

RabbitEvery year an estimated 1 billion rabbits are killed around the world for their fur!

Intensively reared, thousands of rabbits in factory farms will spend 8 to 9 months in solitary cages until they are slaughtered.

Much of this fur will end up as coats, boots, hats, gloves and trim or lining for jackets and other fashion clothing items.

But there is a hidden side to rabbit fur that many people are unaware of. You may have items made of fur and not even know.
Rabbit fur cat toy
Many cat owners and cat shelters around the world have toy mice for their cats that could be made from rabbit fur. These toys are produced in China and are often not even labelled as real fur.

The Fur Free Alliance provides information on how to tell if something is made with real fur but if you are in any doubt, please don’t buy!


Bullfighting’s final vote

This is history in the making! There is now a very real chance to end the blood sport of bullfighting in one of Spain’s largest regions: Catalonia.

After a huge anti-cruelty campaign, 180,000 Catalonian citizens signed a petition against bullfighting.

The regional parliament in Barcelona will vote today to ban bullfighting for good!

You can follow the voting as it happens by logging on to WSPA’s BullfightBan live twitter feed.

Vasillis is looking for a loving home!

Vasillis is a small puppy of about 3 months old which was left at a hotel in Sissi…
He is an affectionate dog which loves to play with other dogs. As he is still young it will be easy to teach him how to behave. He will not become a very big dog as he has short legs and at the moment only weights around 3 kilos.
Vasillis is greatly admired on Crete as he looks very much like the local and popular hunting dogs, but his foster mum won’t, understandably, allow him to fall in the hands of a hunter.
Who wants to give little Vasillis a loving home where he can have his lazy dog life?!

A day of good news!!!

After a long time with us, we are very happy to inform you that both Jude and Lambros have found homes!!!

Jude in fact will be trading one island for another… he will soon be travelling to Karpathos! But more about that in another blog 😉

Thank you to everyone who helped to care & rehome these two gorgeous and loving dogs!
