Donated Furs Help Rescued Foxes

Wearing fur is a major no-no, but say a family member has some fur coats taking up space in a closet. What do you DO with them? Why not donate them to PETA so that we can use them to help animals? That’s right—your donated furs could offer comfort to sick, injured, orphaned, and homeless animals.

Our pals across the pond at PETA U.K. recently delivered a bundle of unwanted furs to The Fox Project, and they were kind enough to send us some super-cute photos of rescued red foxes snuggling up in the furs and using them as bedding.

While we can’t bring back the animals who have been killed for nothing more than fashion, people can show compassion by donating their furs to help injured and orphaned animals. Do you have family members who still wear fur? Show them this blog post and see if their heart isn’t melted by these adorable rescued foxes!

Why not sign our Pledge to Be Fur-Free now? Then learn how you can put unwanted furs to good use!

    Superfabulous idea! Yes, I know people who still wear fur and YES I will send this to them. Maybe if they know they are donating to a good cause and actually giving their furs a better home and purpose, their hearts will get all melty and they’ll do the right thing! Many thanks!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
