The Kennel Club Donates Oxygen Masks For Dogs To First Aid & Safety Patrol
When tragedy strikes, first responders show up to save lives. Traditionally, we think about ourselves, but what about our pets?
Our loyal friends are also included in the organizational mandate as First aid and security patrol, who recently received a donation of 18 canine oxygen masks from the Lebanon County Kennel Club.
“We want to save lives no matter how many legs you step on,” FASP executive director Gregg Smith said in a statement announcing the donation.
Masks can be used to revive pets and bring immense relief to residents who desperately want their pets to be treated in the aftermath of a tragedy as well.
“Many residents consider their pets almost like family and feel it is important that they receive oxygen on site with a properly fitted mask,” the statement said.
The masks fit standard oxygen lines. Cats and small dogs will wear the mask as usual, while large dogs can be treated with only their nose in the mask enclosure. These reusable masks have now been placed on every FASP unit, the statement said.
