Help Us Clean Up The Gulf Oil Spill!

Best Friends is currently collecting clean pet hair to donate to the efforts in cleaning the massive oil spill in the Gulf. Hair is hydrophobic which means it repels water, it is also great for absorbing oil (greasy hair means that hair collects oil). So Matter of Trust has volunteers making devices called hair mats and hair booms out of recycled hair and nylons- which are then placed in the water to soak up the oil. After this big spill, hair is in high demand- and we can all help! We are saving and shipping all the hair we cut from pets in our grooming salons to Matter of Trust for use in the oil spill clean up. If you would like to do your part to help with the clean up efforts, call 508-881-3441 to set up a grooming appointment. Every piece of fur helps!
