Soccer Player Tim Howard and PETA Prefer 'Ink Over Mink'

Soccer goalkeeper for the US national team, Tim Howard would lose his shirt to help animals, and he did just that for a new anti-fur, “Ink Not Mink” ad for PETA.

Alongside a shirtless Howard, with his elaborate tattoos on full display, the ad reads, “Fur only looks good on its original owner. Be comfortable in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs.”

Howard, a New Jersey native, feels very passionately about animals suffering for fur.

“Protecting animals is very important to me, and I think speaking out against fur is an amazing cause,” he says. “When I see someone wearing fur, I just want to sit them down in front of one of PETA’s videos and show them just how badly animals suffer for this supposed fabric that no one needs.”

Animals in the fur industry, which include dogs, foxes, rabbits, raccoon, and chinchillas, among others, suffer immensely. They are often gassed, beaten, electrocuted, and skinned alive for their fur. Cruelty is never in fashion, so love the skin you’re in and let animals be the only ones to wear their own fur coats.

Thank you for speaking up for animals, Tim!
