Special Fur Free Friday Cuddle Coats Prep Session
Fur Free Friday is one of the largest global days of action in the history of animal rights with anti-fur events taking place simultaneously around the world against the fur industry.
After protesting Minneapolis’ Ribnick “Luxury Outerwear” and the sale of animal fur and skin, join us at the ARC office, 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. for a special Fur Free Friday Cuddle Coats prep session. Cuddle Coats gives donated furs back to the animals, providing comfort, warmth, and rehabilitation at our rescue and rehab partner facilities nationwide.
We will prep donated furs by removing buttons, zippers, etc. so we can ship them to wildlife rehabilitation centers as soon as possible. Feel free to bring a pair of sharp scissors or seam ripper, although we have several for people to use. Some people like to bring a lint roller for getting fur off their clothes at the end, but please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty!
We’ll have vegan pizza and beverages at the end of the session. Help us convert donated furs that were once brutally taken from animals into a source of care and compassion for the animals.
