Google's global advertising network helps fur farms, fur wholesalers and fur retailers advertise fur all over the world.
THE DOG you see in our petition profile is from a FUR FARM which is a client of Google AdSense.
We have decided to call him "Duke."
We found Duke's image on the site of a FUR FARM that is a longtime GOOGLE CLIENT (and has been a client for at least the 6 months since we've been tracking Google fur ads.) This client of Google's proudly sells "Tibetan Mastiff" among other types of animals for the skin trade.
How did we find Duke? Google AdSense.
for a growing archive of evidence of the companies from which Google profits.
Google is and has been aware of fur ads on its advertising network. (We are not the first campaign to ask Google to partner WITH, not AGAINST, the fur-bearing animals of world.)
WHO ARE WE?
The organizers of FurIsEvil
spend a lot of time rescuing small animals and doing humane education. We are just ordinary citizens who are sick of seeing a good company like Google profit from the skin trade, which consumes the very same animals we try to help every day.
We, the undersigned, are aware that Google advertises for fur farms, fur wholesalers and fur retailers who sell dog skin, cat skin and the skins of all other fur-bearing sentient beings.
We ask you, the Board of Directors of Google, to be compassionate, live up to your corporate motto ("Don't Be Evil"), and put the fur advertising business where it belongs: in the past.
We pledge to shine sunlight on Google's unfortunate role in the fur business, and to celebrate and applaud your compassion when you ban fur from your powerful ad network.
We thank you in advance for taking ethical action on behalf of millions of sentient beings who are voiceless, defenseless and who deserve our mercy, our compassion and our love.
This petition is addressed to the Board of Directors of Google, which is comprised of the following ten people:
Shirley M. Tilghman, President of Princeton University
John Hennessy, President of Stanford University
