CONGRATULATIONS SE Minnesota! Because of your generosity, 9 different fire department now have 34 new pet oxygen masks. Let’s hope they don’t have to use them, but you can feel good that a pet’s life may be saved because of you.
But we’re not done! Our furry family members in other surrounding communities want their local fire departments to have the pet O2 masks, too. We are very fortunate to have received some very generous donations, but we still need your support to get at least one O2 mask set in each community.
So let’s keep this campaign alive with the enthusiasm we had in the Rochester campaign!

How important is a pet O2 mask?
On August 18, 2014, there was a fire in an Austin, MN home. Fortunately, no one was home. Or was there? A neighbor saw the fire and, when the local fire department responded, he was able to share that Molly, the owners’ dog, was inside and locked in her crate. Firemen were able to get to Molly, but the fear was that they were too late. They carried her limp body out of the house and began using the pet O2 mask. The pet O2 mask saved Molly’s life. Besides a residual cough, Molly recovered. These masks were the result of a fundraising activity by Bone Appetit Canine Bakery (BACB) in 2004.
