One of the goals of Companion Animal Advocates’ humane education program is to make sure that every town in Bergen County is equipped with a pet oxygen mask kit so that pets are protected in case of an emergency. To date, CAA has facilitated the donation of 149 sets of pet oxygen masks throughout Bergen and Passaic Counties. The masks come in three sizes for large, medium and small dogs/cats. These specially sized masks will enable firefighters or EMT’s to deliver oxygen to pets in need and in some cases save their lives.
If you are interested in donating a set of oxygen masks to your community, please contact Christine at CAA at 201-706-7666 or use the donate link on this page.
The $100 tax-deductible donation includes: 3 oxygen masks (1 small, 1 medium & 1 large), 3 oxygen air tubes (1 for each oxygen mask, 22mm diameter), 1 02 Fur Life carry bag (for storage and mobility), 1 laminated instruction sheet, 1 kennel lead (for animal restraint and control), 2 “Pet Oxygen Masks On Board” decals (for display on the vehicle and in department), 1 Power Point Presentation for personnel training, 1 Instructional DVD “Pets Need Oxygen Too”, 2 Animal Incident Reports, and a pet rescue notice form.
