Back to Please Help Rabbits Tortured for Angora

As ninety percent of angora clothing is produced in China it is highly likely that the angora sold in the following stores is made in China.

An on-line friend and I have done a search for the contact details of stores that sell angora, however as the country of origin is not included in the on-line information I cannot be absolutely certain that the garments sold by each store come from China. Nonetheless it is worth writing to ask them not to stock angora produced in China.

I began my letter with:

"As a retailer of angora products I urge you to please consider not selling angora clothing that is produced in China." Then I went on to explain what happens to rabbits in Chinese farms and included the PETA link and links to the Independent and the Daily Mail.

Thanks to Rabbits United Forum user Compass for the the first list of retailers below. There are no doubt other stores which sell angora and if you know of any not on this list please let me know by sending an e-mail to Christine: barley77ca@aol.com.

Address list update December 14th – scroll down for the contact details of more retailers that sell angora – New list is about half way down

Please Write to Retailers

Please write and ask retailers to stop selling angora products made in China.

Please be polite, the store you are contacting may not be aware of the treatment of rabbits in Chinese farms.

I began my letter with:

"As a retailer of angora products I urge you to please consider not selling angora clothing that is produced in China." Then I went on to explain what happens to rabbits in Chinese farms and included the PETA link and links to the Independent and the Daily Mail.

Letters are more effective and more likely to be read, but please if this is not possible send e-mail or use the store's on-line form. Please do your best and write to as many of these stores as possible.

The information below is correct to the best of my ability. Please verify yourself if you have any doubts. There's not always an appropriate subject choice for
e-mail or on-line forms, few stores provide a general e-mail address. Where appropriate I have advised the best subject selection.

Also consider writing on the Facebook and Twitter pages of the above retailers.

It is important to keep in mind that this is a problem world-wide. 

Although the PETA campaign included on this blog is featured on their UK website many other countries world-wide sell products produced in China.

A similar campaign can be found on PETA's USA website:

Check on PETA USA’s website for similar campaigns in your country:

This is a list update 14th December with new addresses of retailers that sell angora.
I rather think that any store that sells clothing is likely to stock angora so I intend to add as many stores as possible.

If as many people as possible can write to any of these stores about the cruelty of rabbits hopefully things will change. I know it is a busy time of year but just do the best you can.
Some of the list was sent by a blog visitor - see comment below. I have endeavoured to find postal addresses for as many as possible and on-line contact details. Unfortunately it seems some retailers are not that helpful in providing contact details.

Evans

This retailer is number one with regards to difficult to find contact details.

On-line form - There are two on-line forms .  I would worry about the reliability of either concerning this issue and recommend that you write a letter if possible.

Top Shop/Topman
Concerning Top Shop. This store is really unhelpful as regard to any obvious contact
information on its website other than by telephone.

I tracked down a customer service e-mail address included in the Terms and Conditions
page right at the bottom customer. service@TOPSHOP.COM.
https://www.topshop.com/checkout_popups/terms.html
I recommend that for this store a letter would most certainly be the best option.

I think Simply Be and Fashion World belong to the same group - all very complicated as I am unfamiliar with either. Below is the best I could do with tracking down their contact details. if anyone has any further contact information regarding either please let me know.
Really hard work finding contact details for this retailer.

Tesco
On-line form - https://www.tescohelp.com/tesco/forms/direct_form.html
I think it is best if you can to send a letter by post as there is no real e-mail or online form- at least one that looks reliable. The above which is for Tesco Direct is probably the best way to make  contact on-line. I would not recommend on-line contact with this store.

Postal Address
Tesco Head Office
Shire Park, Falcon Way

ASDA

There appears to be no on-line contact address for ASDA. Clicking on their contact
link right at the bottom of the homepage http://www.asda.com/ takes you to this page 
https://asda.custhelp.com/app/helphome?cmpid=ahc-_-soc-bnf7-_-asdacom-dsk-_-hp-_-foot which as you will see is anything but a contact page, no e-mail, no on-line form. Anyone would think they do not wish to hear from their customers.

So please if you are able to write only one postal letter please write it to  ASDA.

ASDA
Southbank,
Great Wilson St,
Leeds,
West Yorkshire LS11 5AD

If for some reason letters are not possible please send a tweet https://twitter.com/asda/?item=bnf13
Or contact by their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Asda?item=bnf14

Please now sign the pledge if you have not already done so

Ben Williamson, a spokesman for PETA, said:

"Ninety per cent of the world's Angora come from China.

"Chances are if you are buying Angora, it comes from China.

"In half of the farms visited by our Asia investigator, they saw this live plucking happen."

Please say no to angora wool and join PETA's campaign against this cruel and violent industry by clicking this link:
