DOG HAIR WANTED
400,000 POUNDS OF DOG HAIR WANTED _ Dog groomers across the country are working to collect more than 400,000 pounds of hair to be used to absorb oil from the spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The groomers were organized by Matter of Trust, a California ecological charity that began the drive to make the hair into booms and mats that soak up oil. Matter of Trust also convinced PETCO stores nationwide to join with individual pet groomers. Dog hair comprises fibers that easily soak up oil and the hair is free.
