Coats for Cubs is an annual fur drive that encourages the donation of fur items to aid in the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned animals across the United States. Donated furs are sent to wildlife rehabilitation centers where they are used as bedding to provide a more natural and nurturing environment for the recovering animals.
Coats for Cubs is operated by resale fashion retailer Buffalo Exchange, who, with the help of their customers, has collected 13,644 furs since 2006. The public was invited to donate at any Buffalo Exchange location during normal business hours between January 2 and Earth Day, April 22, 2017. Real furs in any condition are welcome!
