Coats for Cubs

An HSUS campaign to repurpose old fur coats for injured wildlife begins in November.

In November, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) will begin its annual Coats for Cubs recycling program, in partnership with Buffalo Exchange. The program addresses the problem that many people own old fur coats that, for ethical reasons, they now choose not to wear. Coats for Cubs takes these coats through donations at Buffalo Exchange stores and then turns them into blankets for injured or orphaned wildlife at wildlife rehabilitation centers. The fur, cut to an appropriate size for the animal, then helps serve as a stress-reliever, a warm nest, or a toy for the animals. More than 200 wildlife rehabilitators participate in the program, collecting the fur for animals such as rabbits, bobcats, foxes, and raccoons. Coats for Cubs kicks off November 13 and runs through Earth Day, April 22, 2011.
