When my grandmother gave me her fox fur coat, I didn’t know what to do with it. As an animal lover, I wasn’t going to wear it, but I didn’t want to sell a valuable gift from my grandmother, either.
Thankfully, there’s an organization that will take your fur coat and give it back to those who need it the most: our tiny, furry animal friends.
The Cuddle Coats organization turns animal cruelty into animal care. Located in Minnesota, the non-profit strips old fur coats of buttons and zippers and sends the furs back out to animal rehabilitation centers around the country.Cuddle Coats
The program is a branch of the Animal Rights Coalition. They seek to make the world a kinder place for all animals. Cuddle Coats
The pelts have a tremendous impact on orphaned and injured animals. The fur keeps them warm and makes them feel safe.Cuddle Coats
It also helps foster their bond to the natural world, with the hopes of making their reintroduction to the wild easier when they are ready.Cuddle Coats
The fur also helps minimize the amount of touching that happens with humans hands. This helps animals feel more at ease.
Over 1,000 coats have been donated since the program began. They have helped bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels, beavers, mice, and countless other ailing animals.Cuddle Coats
We never thought that something like fur coats could actually be used to give back to animals. What a remarkable idea!
