Coats for Cubs
If you recently decided to take the fur-free pledge or you inherited some random pelts when your great-aunt Bessie passed on, there is something helpful you can do with those old items. Buffalo Exchange clothing stores and the Humane Society have teamed up with a program called Coats for Cubs. You take your old fur items, including coats with trims, ripped items, etc. to Buffalo Exchange and they make their way to lining beds for injured wildlife. The program runs now through April 22nd and all Buffalo Exchanges are participating; just specify your donation is part of the Coats for Cubs program.
