Coats for Cubs!

Calling all vintage lovers and thrifting masters! We need your assistance (and so do cute little animals)!

The Humane Society of the United States has launched a campaign called Coats for Cubs, and we think you ModLovers across the country may be able to help.

Animal shelters across the country are in need of old fur coats to help rehabilitate orphaned animals. Swatches of fur can be used as comfort aids, surrogate parents, or even a new friend for young animals that have been taken in by shelters. If you’re anything like us, while you may not opt to wear fur, that $5 fur find at the thrift store or old hand-me-down collar is worth helping out a great cause (and it may earn you a tax deduction).

Find out more at the Humane Society’s Coats for Cubs website. We love when fashion can make a difference, and we’re confident that you do too.

    Orphaned and injured animals absolutely break my heart. My family has been rescuing, caring for, finding homes for these animals for as long as I can remember. Thanks so much for sharing this- I immediately emailed my mom asking her to send in some old rabbit furs I have in my closet.
