Fur belongs to animals.
Comforting rescued wildlife is easily our second favourite way to see fur. The first is on its original owner – animals.
Sadly, millions of animals – including minks, rabbits, foxes, possums and raccoons – are still kept in appalling conditions in fur factory farms. They are forced to live in small wire cages where they’re unable to express their natural behaviours, which leads to chronic boredom and stress. After a miserable life of deprivation, they are then electrocuted or gassed for their furs with some even beaten to death or skinned alive.
All for the sake of what some people call ‘fashion’.
Thanks to the kind-hearted initiative of Snuggle Coats, the opportunity is before us to try and make amends for the mistakes of the past, and move towards a kinder world. Do you have items made from animal fur to donate? Please reach out to animal rescues and wildlife carers in your area and see if the animals in their care are in need of your donation.
