Pet-friendly oxygen masks donated to Delisle and District Fire Department

Delisle firefighters now have a much better chance of saving pets who are overcome with smoke in a burning building.
A kit containing pet-friendly oxygen masks designed to fit comfortably over the muzzle of a dog or cat was recently donated to the Delisle and District Fire Department by Solange Bosse, the Saskatchewan dealer for Invisible Fence. The oxygen kits are being donated to fire departments across the province as part of the company’s “Project Breathe” initiative.

The kit contains three different sizes of pet-friendly masks to accommodate small dogs and cats, as well as, medium and large dogs. Continue reading “Pet-friendly oxygen masks donated to Delisle and District Fire Department”
