Green Circle Salons is Hair to Help Furry Victims of Fort McMurray Wildfires

Edmonton, Canada, May 15, 2016 --( In response to the ravaging wildfires in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Green Circle Salons, in collaboration with Salon Magazine and Fabric Depot, is announcing the donation of 100 pet beds, made entirely of locally reclaimed materials, to pets that have been victimized by this local disaster.

Using hair clippings collected from GCS Certified Salons and excess material donated by local Alberta fabric retailer, Fabric Depot, the GCS team has been working endlessly sewing and stuffing the emergency pet beds for the thousands of pets affected by the Fort McMurray Fire.

Being a team of animal lovers, Green Circle Salons understands that to the residents of Fort McMurray these pets are best friends and family members. With this in mind, they wanted to do what they can to make a difference and provide some well-deserved care and comfort to the people and animals affected by this traumatic event.

As owners and their furry friends begin to reunite through ongoing animal rescue missions, these beds will be distributed free of charge by the Edmonton Humane Society located at 13620 - 163 Street NW Edmonton, Alberta T5V 0B2.
