Save Animals with the Fur in Your Closet!

We know the issue of wearing fur is a hot ongoing debate with many sides, and while I’m not here to judge anyone for their views, I wanted to share an alternative to furs that many folks probably aren’t aware exists… I know I wasn’t!

I personally don’t wear fur, but for those of us who have inherited fur coats and shawls from our mothers and grandmothers of an earlier, pre-PETA era, you no longer need to hide those coats in fear, thanks to the Humane Society’s Coats for Cubs program.

We can now donate real fur coats to help out some pretty darn cute little animals in need.  How much more fashionable can you get?!

All over the country, animal preservationists are helping to heal and comfort orphaned animals like deer, foxes, rabbits, raccoons and the like.  After loosing their mothers at an early age, many of these animals refuse to eat and are in total shock from separation.

So your old furs become donated bedding, which in turn becomes their new nest!  It’s like these little lost creatures can feel like mamma is near them with the soft warmth of animal fur, which saves lives!  Rescuers even poke holes in the fur to slip a bottle through to simulate a nursing mother, which gets the babies eating.

I can’t think of a better way to rock some fur!  Learn how to donate yours here:
