oxygen fur life project


Losing a pet due to a house fire can be a devastating experience. As most pet owners leave their furry companions home alone when they go to work, pets are left to fend for themselves in the event of a house fire. While affixing 'rescue alert stickers' to your home can be helpful to first responders, saving the pet's life is not assured. Unlike humans who instinctively run out during fires, pets instinctively look for a hiding place to protect them from the fire. Far too many pets die each year of smoke asphyxiation. While firemen attempt to get pets safely out of burning structures, they are not able to revive them unless they have the proper equipment - pet oxygen masks. These specially-designed animal masks can be used both on conscious pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation and pets that need to be resuscitated after losing consciousness from exposure to the dangerous toxic fumes.

Our goal is to equip every fire house on Long Island with these life saving kits. Your donation will make this possible.

Are you a member of a fire department or know someone who is? If you would like to apply for one of our free kits please call us at 516-882-5022.

So far we have donated kits to several fire departments and their houses, including:
Atlantic Steamer Fire Co.1, Oyster Bay
Oyster Bay Fire Dept Co. 1
Glen Cove Fire Department
Hicksville Fire Dept. Hose Co. 4 (about to be delivered)
East Norwich Fire Dept. (about to be delivered)
Syosset Fire Dept (2 stations) (about to be delivered)
Bayville Fire Department (about to be delivered)

More to come!
