How Your Unwanted Fur Can Help Wildlife
Pass on your old fur items to a wildlife rehabilitator to warm and comfort orphaned and injured wildlife
The Humane Society of the United States is no longer collecting fur garments for distribution to wildlife rehabilitators. However, the resale retailer Buffalo Exchange will be doing a limited collection of furs. For more information visit coatsforcubs.com.
You may also wish to contact wildlife rehabilitators in your area to see if they can use your fur garment. If you don't find a rehabber listed in your area, try asking your local animal shelter if they have a contact, or type "wildlife rehabilitator" into an online search engine.
