Tell First Responders to Carry Pet Oxygen Masks

A cat named "Little" was saved from an Indiana house fire thanks to quick-thinking fire fighters and the pet oxygen masks they had on hand.

Firemen Troy Platz and Ken Knoell found the cat hiding in the corner and immediately put on an oxygen mask while rushing him outside. Little's owner was happy to see him alive and welcomed him with open arms.

Unfortunately, not all first responders carry pet oxygen masks. It is a simple thing that fire fighters and EMTs can do to save animals' lives and spare families the trauma of losing a pet on top of property damage from fires. Please sign the petition to urge all first responders to carry pet oxygen masks!
