Now to our MEWS Fur TODAY!
Valentine the puppy yawned during the announcement that The Wichita Fire Department now has 12 pet oxygen masks. And the city now will offer a free pet adoption service for families who lose pets in a fire. More bout dat here: Saving Pets in Fires
Following iz frum Thursday, January 22, 2009 as seen ats The Wichita Fire Department accepted a donation of pet oxygen masks from the Invisible Fence Company, who agreed to donate 42 masks. Twelve masks donated costing about $28 each, will be immediately available. Remaining masks will be delivered later in 2009.

"With the addition of this life saving tool, we have greater odds of resuscitating a pet that would normally succumb to smoke inhalation," Wichita Fire Chief Ronald D. Blackwell said. "Thanks to the generosity of the Invisible Fence Company, firefighters will be able to return beloved pets to their families."

The past few months, fire crews have battled a number of structure fires where pets were victims of smoke inhalation. Resuscitating pets is a challenge because the oxygen masks currently carried by fire crews are designed for humans. The Invisible Fence Company decided to donate oxygen masks designed to fit pets. In order for the masks to be available at all fire scenes; masks will be placed with Battalion Chiefs and Safety Officers.

Fur more news bouts masks gettin donated, maybee in a town near you! Try dis in da Google or Yahoo search stuffoms wif quotes: "Adoptions, oxygen masks donated" or "pet oxygen masks donated" or dis linkie - Yahoo Search Furry Oxygen Masks Donated

  1. That was a great Monday Mews report, Katie! We are gonna check and see if our community has oxygen masks for our furry citizens!

  2. That is such a good idea, I didn't even know such masks existed, hooray for our beloved pets. I am sad every time I read about a fire and a pet is lost, not to mention people also, very nice post.


Dearest Furry Friends, Thanks so much fur visiting and leaving your paw prints. Love and Purrz from the Katie Katz
