October Is Fire Safety Awareness Month, A Guest Blog By Wag’N Enterprises


Wag’N Enterprises Observes Fire Safety Awareness Month

with Free Pet Oxygen Kit Shipping

Wag’N Enterprises’ O2 Fur Life® program provides first responders a channel to order life-saving pet oxygen kits.  Throughout October, the company and kit-manufacturer McCulloch Medical are offering free shipping in observance of National Fire Safety Awareness Month.

“The goal of O2 Fur Life is to get all first responders in North America to carry pet oxygen mask kits to help distressed pets after an emergency,” Ines de Pablo, Wag’N’s executive director of Pet Emergency Management Division, said.  “McCulloch Medical generously offered to cover all shipping costs for first responder, direct and sponsor O2 Fur Life orders placed between Oct. 1 and Oct. 31.  This is a great way to save pets and money.”

O2 Fur Life was created by de Pablo in 2008 when she realized that aftercare of pets rescued from emergencies, such as fires, was something that most first responders weren’t equipped to handle.  Most humans need oxygen after an emergency, and pets are no different, de Pablo said.

Now, de Pablo’s work has placed 2,460 life-saving pet oxygen kits in more than 1,050 first responder departments in the United States and Canada.

 
Pet oxygen kits work similarly to those used on humans.  The kits contain three different sizes of masks that can accommodate different size animals –everything from a ferret to a foal.  See below for  a demonstration on how these masks are used :

 

Pet oxygen kits start at $70 for all first responders and sponsor orders and $90 for private consumers.  More information is available on Wag’N’s website at www.wagnpetsafety.com/pet_oxygen_masks.html.

Since the fall of 2009, Wag’N has been working diligently with McCulloch Medical to raise pet safety awareness and pet oxygen mask awareness during the National Fire Safety awareness season. “Too many animals get injured and die every year due to preventable fire related emergencies. Incident mitigation combined with pet oxygen mask kits can help save countless pet lives” De Pablo argues.
