The Pink Dog Parlor, located at 629 Plank Road in Clifton Park, wants to donate your dog’s hair to help soak up the oil spill along the Gulf coast.
Owner Michelle Kennedy said the doggie salon has begun saving all the hair from your pets, which will be shipped to oil spill clean-up organization Matter of Trust.
Once the hair reaches a warehouse near the Gulf coast, volunteers will combine the dog fur with human hair and stuff it into donated nylons to create highly-absorbent booms that are used to contain oil spills.
According to a blog post on Newsweek, the oil slick stretches almost 2,000 miles and the total cost of the spill is at least $14 billion.
