Buffalo Exchange reports that its annual Coats for Cubs fur drive collected 1,044 furs to benefit injured and orphaned animals.

More than 1,000 furs and fur items were donated at Buffalo Exchange shops throughout the U.S. between Jan. 13 and Earth Day, April 22.

They've already shipped the donated furs to animal rehabilitator facilities around the U.S. for use as bedding to help orphaned and injured animals. Rehabbers have

reported that the animals benefit immensely from the use of fur items and

have been heard having audible sighs of pleasure and relief as they

snuggle into the fur.  Learn more about the program at  www.CoatsForCubs.com

Buffalo Exchange will accept fur donations again in January
