The donation is part of "Project Breathe™" by Invisible Fence® Brand which aims to equip every fire station in Canada, the United States and the U.K with pet oxygen masks.
Nineteen donated kits in all will be given out after a training session Sunday at the Stow fire department.
“We hope that by donating oxygen mask kits that we will contribute to saving more pets and hopefully protect pet owners that may risk their own life to save a pet in a fire,” said Dan Kelley, owner, Invisible Fence of the Southern Tier.
Invisible Fence Brand Donates Pet Oxygen Masks to Elmhurst, IL firefighters.
Spieler said that countless times throughout his career in the volunteer fire service he has seen pets rescued only for the firefighters not to have the proper equipment outside to further help.
These kits often times are the difference between saving a pets life or not in a fire.
Members of the West Mifflin-based department know how important pets are to families.
“You can’t get a proper fit with a regular human mask. These masks encompass the whole head of the animal.”
Lives are turned upside down. Pets are valued family members. We want families to know that their pet can be cared for if tragedy strikes.
Monkman said in the past, firefighters have used human oxygen masks to help pets, but the seal isn’t proper and the pet doesn’t get the right amount of oxygen.
Mattheis said his goal was to be proactive and have the masks for prevention. In a handful of cases around the state, he said, oxygen can help a pet rescued from a fire recover more quickly.
This helps firefighters deliver the right amount of oxygen to the pet and also protects firefighters from an injured animal that may try to bite out of fear
"These specialty masks make such a difference in whether an animal's life can be saved."
He says while the team will do mouth to mouth resuscitation on a pet, it isn't the best way to resuscitate an animal.

“Pets can succumb to smoke inhalation just like humans,” said Karla Toppen, owner of Invisible Fence of the Tri-States. “They can perish shortly after being rescued. Pets are a part of the family. It’s pretty devastating to lose a pet.”
He said the family thought the dog had died in the fire, and were thrilled to hear it was recovering after being rescued.
"Pets are a big part of everyone's lives these days and so not only do we save people with ambulance, first responders, and fire departments, but we want to save the pets also," says Vanessa Jewitt with EMSTAR.
7 of 8 dogs survive after firefighters carry them from burning home.
A total of 45 rescue kits were donated to 14 area fire and police departments through the efforts of members of the Barberton High School Four City Compact Nursing Group and the Invisible Fence Brand and will be used to efficiently administer oxygen to animals rescued from a fire.
“We really can’t express our gratitude enough for what Jeffrey has done for Americans,” said Sherry Berger, owner of Invisible Fence® Brand by Lytnin, Inc.
