Rabbits Scream in Pain as Their Fur is Plucked While They Are Alive!: https://rantingsfromavirtualsoapbox.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/rabbits-scream-in-pain-as-their-fur-is-plucked-while-they-are-alive/
Please Help Rabbits Tortured For Angora:
https://rantingsfromavirtualsoapbox.wordpress.com/2013/11/27/please-help-rabbits-tortured-for-angora/ – Scroll to the end of this post for a simplified and updated list of retailers for you to write to.
There follows more action you can take to help rabbits.
Please help PETA with their continuing campaign to stop this shockingly cruel treatment of rabbits. Most of the information below is from PETA’s USA website however the suggested actions may be either taken by anyone or adapted to your own country.
Firstly an e-mail form to Tell Gap to Stop Squeezing Profits From Screaming Rabbits! Gap have stores worldwide so wherever you are please send an e-mail.
Warning distressing graphic. If you are likely to be effected please scroll down quickly to send the e-mail.
As you can see there has been an update so please edit the template letter to reflect this and make sure that Gap goes all the way by writing—and also encouraging everyone you know to write—to urge the company to BAN angora NOW!
Check out the link below for action taken by Animal advocates who went to a Gap, Inc., store in both Hollywood, California, and Victoria, British Columbia, in order to “return” “bloody rabbits” meant to represent those whose angora fur had been ripped from their sensitive skin to make sweaters sold by the retailer.
Please write letters and e-mail to the Chinese ambassador to your country
If you live in the USA you can use a PETA e-mail form to write to the Chinese Ambassador
https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=5171 Scroll down to send an e-mail. Please use as a template and add your own thoughts. If this is not possible just send as it as it is.
Or if you prefer using your own e-mail or write a postal letter the contact details of the Chinese Ambassador to the USA follows. Also details for other countries.
If you are not sure how to address the ambassador here are some suggestions:
According to this website the correct salutation for a letter or e-mail is Dear Ambassador and His or Her Excellency followed by full their full name on the envelope http://www.debretts.com/forms-of-address/professions/diplomatic-service/foreign-ambassador.aspx May apply only to UK foreign ambassadors.
Confusing? Isn’t it always. I think it will be okay to write His Excellency Ambassador Mr. – add full name – at the left hand corner of your e-mail or letter along with the embassy address and address him as Dear Ambassador.
Whether these formalities make any real difference or not I have no idea, to my mind such salutations and others matter of etiquette are an anachronism and elevate one person above another. But that perhaps is another matter for another time. The most important thing to remember when writing is please be courteous.
Ambassador: Cui Tiankai
Address: 3505, International Place, N.W., Washington DC 20008
If you live elsewhere in the world please send an e-mail or postal letter to the Chinese Embassy in your own Country. There follows a short list, if your country is not included please use a search engine for details of contact information.

Don’t forget to write to retailers in your country
I have written to every retailer here in the UK
There have been some successes
Here in the UK Zara and Gap finally ban angora as shoppers threaten to boycott shops over the horrific plight of rabbits plucked alive for their fur
Success is possible . Please carefully read : Retailers Who Have Dropped Angora – the List
Things are moving extremely fast in the campaign against angora. More and more companies are listening to their customers and ditching angora
If you have not already written please do so to all or as many retailers as you can included on the list below. Please write also to those who have indicated a ban to ensure all commitments to bans and investigations are followed through.
The following is an updated and simplified list now all in one place of retailers that sell angora. New Additions – scroll to the bottom . There are no doubt many more that I am not ware of please let me know about any retailers not on the list

Next Retail Ltd

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.
Evans / Arcadia
This is the only address I could find other than one for recruitment.
This is the head office for the Arcadia group which includes Evans and a number of other high street shops.

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.
I recommend that for this store a letter would most certainly be the best option.
Top Man have an on-line contact form – choose Stock Query

Simply Be/Fashion World,
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.
On-line form. I choose the “our products” option
This is the only postal address I could find
40 Lever Street
On-line Form: http://www.yoursclothing.co.uk/contactus.aspx
1184 Lincoln Road,
Don’t overlook the supermarkets
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.
Tesco Head Office

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.
