Your Chance to Make a Difference in the Gulf

There are so many ways to assist, but here is one small gesture many of us can make. Can we get a roo from the Sibe crowd on this one? Pick that snow off the lawn and send it in! Details are below, but check out the video.





matteroftrust.org: A huge Nationwide response is currently taking place to help get hair boom to the gulf coast beaches in need. We have 12 locations spread out through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida that are receiving hair. There are hundreds of volunteers having Boom B Q parties where they're making the boom.

Thousands are signing up to our database program Excess Access (free and fast) to be assigned where to send hair, fur, waste wool clippings and used nylons (washed, runs ok) for making the booms. Please see our Youtube for information on Hair Mats and Hair Booms!

  1. I wish I had a long-haired dog! Thinking back to my riding days, I would have had so much hair at this time of year following shedding season..

  3. In about two weeks, we can provide quite a bit when we all start our big shed. Mom is going to gather it all up.

  5. I am so happy to see you post this extremely wonderful company!! They are located in my home town (or across the bay from my home) and my two-legger volunteers for them once a month 'stuffing hose' as she calls it. I have always hated it when she leaves me home all day but I now see that she is doing good so maybe next time I wont whine so much.

  13. Interesting! I never would have thought hair and pantyhose to pick up oil.

    If I still had my kitty, I'd have a zillion pounds of his fur I could've sent. He was always shedding, I don't know how it was possible he ever still had any hair left.
