Wildlife preservationists throughout the country are utilizing cozy furs to help heal orphaned animals like rabbits, raccoons, foxes, and deer.

Circle of life, much? Rescuers even poke holes in the fur and stick bottles inside, simulating a nursing mother. Want to make an ethical decision with your fur wonder? Learn more about how to donate your duds here.
