More Happy Tails

We love our Invisible Fence® Brand system. We have 2 dogs, and with Invisible Fence® Brand we don't have to worry about them getting out in the road, or will they be at home when we get off of work. They are always there. I like the part about the boundaries you can set. You can make sure they stay out of your flower bed, or other areas that you don't want them in. We have had our Invisible Fence® Brand system for about 4 years and we would not have a pet without it. It's wonderful. Thanks, Invisible Fence® Brand for making life with our pets so enjoyable.

Pet oxygen masks now part of Northport Fire Rescue's arsenal

"To a lot of people, their pets are their children. So if it's important to them, it's important to us," Captain Jason Norris said.

NORTHPORT, AL (WBRC) -

Milo came face to snout with very first oxygen mask this afternoon. If this Yorkie needs rescuing from a house fire in Northport, the people likely to save him are more prepared than ever.

"To a lot of people, their pets are their children. So if it's important to them, it's important to us," Captain Jason Norris said.

Pet oxygen masks are the latest tool Northport fire fighters are using. The group "Invisible Fence® Brand" donated pet oxygen masks to the department last week.

Though the U.S. Fire Administration doesn't track to number of pet-related deaths connected to house fires, some industry websites believe that number could be anywhere from 40,000 to 150,000, according to Norris. Most of those deaths are the result of smoke inhalation.

Masks for humans could be used on pets in a pinch. But these are designed specifically for cats or dogs.

"We have oxygen masks that fit children. We have masks that fit adults. With this, we have three different sizes to choose from and they're shaped to fit the contours of a dog or another animals' face," says Norris.

Northport Fire Rescue will distribute the masks among fire stations in town this week.
