The arts-and-crafts chain has agreed to a no-fur policy after receiving a request from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). According to PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk, “There’s a world of suffering in every piece of fur. A.C. Moore should be commended for saving countless animals’ lives by pulling the pelts off its shelves and pledging to go fur-free.”

Oh My God I had no idea they were even selling real fur!!! How terrible!! But thank God they stopped!
I didn’t realize that either! I had just assumed anything resembling fur would have been fake. It’s good to know that will be the case from now on!
