GIVE YOUR FURS BACK TO THE ANIMALS!
Jan 13, 2014 to Apr 22, 2014
Beginning January 13 through Earth Day, we will be accepting fur apparel donations (including trims, accessories, coats, etc.) to benefit the annual Coats for Cubs drive. The used furs will be donated to rehabilitation organizations across the country to use for the purpose of providing bedding and comfort to orphaned and injured wildlife.
With the help of our customers, we collected 952 used furs during the winter 2012-13 drive. Since 2006, the company has collected a total of 8,524 used furs on behalf of wildlife rehabilitators nationwide.
