I’m calling all my fellow furry pals… pooches and kitties alike. This time WE can make a difference by helping to clean up the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
How can we do this without opposable thumbs? It’s actually simple, painless, and free. You gotta tell your human pets to gather up all your shedded hair! Yup. All those fur-bunnies we leave laying around the house can now be put to good use!
Matter of Trust, a non-profit organization is going to use our fur to weave hair mats which will then be used to soak up oil that is spreading rapidly across the gulf. It’s already affecting hundreds of sea turtles, oysters, fish, and many many more of our fellow creatures. This is gonna affect our environment for years to come. Did you know they are still cleaning up after the Valdez spill off the coast of Alaska? And that was back in 1989!!
So get to collectin’ your fur balls, my furry friends!! And be sure to put the word out via the kitty-comms, or the pup-phones, to whoever ya can!
To find out where to mail your fur and for more info on using the hairmats to clean up the oil spill, visit Matter of Trust’s website. I also want to thank Charleston’s Low Country Paws for helping to get the word out!
P.S. Our humans can help too, by donating nylon stockings and their own hair!
