Your Chance to Make a Difference in the Gulf

Life With Dogs is reader-supported. We may earn a small commission through products purchased using links on this page.

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!

  3. 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.

  4. Thank you very much for the heads up on this…if only we could be there …somehow, someway….but the little things we will do will become BIG things and we will battle the awful tragedy that we have there!
