As our petition numbers continue to grow, we are launching the “I Will Not Shop at KITSON Until They Go Fur-Free” photo campaign as a way to put faces to the names that support our campaign. The more potential shoppers KITSON sees they are losing, the better chance we have of stopping them from killing fur-bearing animals before next season. Use your face to save lives!
