Coats for Critters. Give your furs back to the animals! Now through Earth Day, April 22, 2007, bring your real fur apparel, including fur trims, fur accessories (such as hats, gloves, and muffs), and shearling to any Buffalo Exchange and let us know it’s a donation for The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Since your donation is not being purchased by Buffalo Exchange, condition is unimportant. The furs are used as bedding to provide comfort for orphaned and injured wildlife. To claim a tax deduction, please mail your fur directly to The HSUS, Attn: Andrea Cimino, 2100 L Street NW, Washington, DC 20037. For info see coatsforcubs.org.
