DALLAS – Dog owners and their pups can now breathe a little easier — literally. Well, at least with doggie oxygen masks.
These “puppies” are saving the lives of pooches and other pets.
Dogs were getting pumped with oxygen after a fire in Dallas early Tuesday morning.
“There were some animals that were rescued, and you can rest assured that in some way, shape or form, these masks were of aid to them,” Mark Berry said. Berry is the Section Chief of Communications for the Dallas Fire Rescue.
There were reportedly over 60 dogs living in that home. Unfortunately, most of them didn`t make it out alive. As sad as that is, apparently 40,000 pets die each year from fires.
To put a stop to this, Dallas Fire Rescue is getting a huge donation of pet oxygen masks from The Highland Meadows Neighborhood Associations` Pet Watch, with help from the Invisible Fence Brand.
“This is so timely that Highland Meadow Association was working on this,” Steve Monahan, of Invisible Fence Brand, said. “We’re just fortunate enough to be able to help out.”
Isn`t that a breath of fresh air?
