Pet fur is a tough one, the extractor should help, but it might not get it all. Hopefully someone will chime in with a technique that works for them.
If you can park it in a garage overnight and put a fan blowing across the interior floor with the windows down this would be easy and inexpensive and will help to evaporate the water off the carpet.

Im thinking about using one of those lint rollers i mean they remove pet hair off clothes why not off car parts.

Those will work on all but the hairs that have wound into the fiber of the carpet. Some pet hair can be very difficult to remove.
Best of luck.

I use a dish washing plastic brush for hair. I have not tryed one but they make rubber bristol brush witch causes static to help pick up hair.
As far as getting dampness dry after extracted. I crack windows turn full heat to floor. Run for 30-45 mins then check for damp spots use a blow dryer on spots or add more time.:xyxthumbs

I have used a plastic scrubbing brush (dry) to brush the hair off, and I've heard others say that using rubber (surgical type, non powdered) works well for hair.
