Donate Dog Hair!

posted on: June 7, 2010

Donate doggie fur and your own hair clippings to help save the Gulf Coast!

Alexandra’s Salon in Everett is collecting hair clippings from their haircuts and will be shipping the hair to an organization on the Gulf Coast that will be using the hair to create “booms” which will be placed into the water to help catch oil headed for the marsh and beaches. Isn’t this the coolest thing? They use the fur/hair and stuff it into a stocking like material which becomes a “boom.” They can also use doggie fur. Getting your hair cut? Send the clippings to Alexandra’s Salon, or collect your dog’s fur afTer brushing. For more info, contact:

Rain, rain, and more rain! The good news is that the dogs have no complaints. As long as they get to go to the park with their doggie friends and romp and play, they are happy as can be! Hmmmmm…yet another life lesson from my doggie companions – for Bella, it just gives her more puddles to run through!
