So how does it work? I just donate my old fur coat to you and you just pass it on? Right?
Well, not exactly (I wish it was that simple).
These furs, in the most part, are used to rehabilitate animals. They like to snuggle and burrow into the fur. And we all know what baby animals like to do - chew things! So we need to make the Snuggle Coat as 'fur kid friendly' as possible!
At Snuggle Coats we take the fur coat apart and bring it back to a fur piece. So that means we gently remove the lining (sometimes these coats are double lined), shoulder pads, wadding, buttons, metal hooks and other construction items. Depending on the item and the type of fur, this process can take a few hours.
The fur is then cut into smaller pieces - sleeves and hats are turned inside out to provide snuggling burrows - and packed and sent to Animal Welfare Groups
