Wild Animals Need Furs

Maybe you were doing some Spring cleaning in grandmother's attic and you uncovered an old fur coat. Now I'm betting most animal lovers wouldn't choose to wear it, but thrifting or selling the pelt isn't the best solution. Even if you donate the proceeds, do you really want to encourage someone else to wear it either?

Instead, ship the coat to the Humane Society's Coats For Cubs program for a tax deductible donation. Upon receiving old furs, organization staffers cut up and distribute to comfort a variety of animals in wildlife rehabilitation efforts – I know I'd feel better having orphaned creatures snuggling or playing with this for their own feel better moment as well!

What a lovely idea! I never understood why anyone would want to pay a lot to wear a dead animal. I always thought fur apparel look tacky anyway, like you're trying too hard to look rich or advertise your wealth.

This is a fabulous idea. I have my mom's old fur in my closet and I have had no idea what to do with it. I'm going to look in to this.
