Operated by resale fashion retailer Buffalo Exchange, the annual Coats for Cubs fur drive encourages the donation of fur items to aid in the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned animals across the United States. Donated furs are collected and shipped to animal rehabilitation centers where they are disassembled and used as bedding to provide a more natural and nurturing environment. Since the furs are disassembled, the condition of the fur contribution is unimportant. Only real furs can be accepted.
The public was invited to donate at any Buffalo Exchange store location between January 13, 2014 and Earth Day, April 22, 2014. With the help of their customers, Buffalo Exchange collected 1,044 used furs during the 2014 drive. Since 2006, Buffalo Exchange has collected a total of 9,568 used furs on behalf of wildlife rehabilitation organizations nationwide.
DROP-OFF LOCATIONS: any Buffalo Exchange store location during normal business hours between January 13, 2014 and Earth Day, April 22, 2014.
