Can You Compost Cat or Dog Hair?

Yes, you can add pet hair to the compost pile. Pet hair would be considered a green compost matter (source of nitrogen).

This is great news for owners of pets that shed frequently. If you don’t own a pet then another idea might be to reach out to local pet grooming stores and see if they have any cat or dog fur to give away. It’s good to add cat or dog hair to the compost pile because it breaks down fairly quickly.
