Two people started this process and incorporated so many more to help collect fur from groomers to send to the Matter of Trust designated location. Coastal Pet Rescue and Catnip N Biscuits pet hotel joined together to start collecting fur for Matter of Trust. Matter of Trust has helped to produce oil booms to be used in oil spills like the Gulf spill right now. Matter of Trust is now being inquired about from BP Oil to get more information about their boom they have created to help with the oil spills. This could be big for Matter of Trust which relies on donations, volunteers and business donating warehouse space for limited times to work as storage facilities to collect the fur for creating booms.
Coastal Pet Rescue founder Lisa Scarbrough has been working with volunteers on going to various places to collect fur and donations. The following places have either donated fur, boxes for shipping, donated towards shipping costs or served as a drop-off location:
- Catnip N Biscuits
- Hoof and Woof
- Islands Pet Center
- Top Dog Spa
- New Attitudes Hair Studio
- Dr. Nancy M. Eschette
- Animal Resort and Spa
- Diva Dogs
- Case Veterinary Hospital
- Seaside Sisters
- Paws Doggy Day Spa and Grooming by Sonia
- Paula Deen Enterprises
The final total was 127.8 pounds of fur from the Savannah area. The fur that was collected was shipped to a warehouse in Pensacola, FL where it will be mixed with human hair and stuffed into nylons. From there it will be placed into mesh bags and ready to be placed into action to help clean up the oil. All of this was possible from the great people of Savannah coming together for a cause that was greater than them. The oil is not here yet and not even sure if it will get here, but the people of Savannah did it for the sake of others and for the sake of the animals that the oil will affect.
