The Pet Oxygen Kit Project, Inc. is an educational and public safety effort of local volunteers, individually and collectively, who are dedicated to providing pet oxygen kits to equip every truck across South Carolina to help them save animals lives following structural. Please help us in the statewide endeavor and sponsor a kit today.
While firemen attempt to get pets safely out of burning structures, they are not able to revive them unless they have the proper equipment – pet oxygen masks. These specially designed animal masks can be used both on conscious pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation and pets the need to be resuscitated after losing consciousness from exposure to the dangerous toxic fumes. These kits can be used on dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and other pets.
The Mission of The Pet Oxygen Kit Project, Inc. is to provide a pet oxygen kit for every truck in South Carolina – approximately 700 fire departments and stations in the state. 100% of all
contributions will be used for purchasing and distributing the kits to fire departments statewide.
Our story began June 2014 when a local NBC affiliate aired the story of a house fire in Columbia, SC. Four firemen working quickly and efficiently were able to resuscitate a kitten that was found unconscious and overcome with smoke in the house fire. This would not have been possible, and
they would not have been able to save “Soldier” without the proper equipment.
After doing some detective work, we quickly learned that not all fire trucks have pet oxygen kits aboard. We have made it our mission to supply and equip every fire truck in all 46 counties in South Carolina with these kits.
The Pet Oxygen Kit includes:
3 Oxygen Masks - 1 small, 1 medium, & 1 large
3 Oxygen Air Tubes - 1 for each a mask, 22 mm diameter
1 Carry Bag for easy storage and mobility
1 Laminated Instruction Sheet which includes ABCs of CPR for Cats and Dogs
1 Kennel Lead for animal restraint and control
2 Animal Incident Report Forms for First Responders - carbonless 3-part form
1 Pet Rescue Notice from provided in electronic format
1 PowerPoint Presentation provided in electronic format
2 "Pet Oxygen Masks On Board" Decals
1 Instructional DVD "Pets Need Oxygen Too"
