Animal Oxygen Masks Donated to Most Vulnerable

PetSafe® Brand Australia distributes pet oxygen masks to most vulnerable

Last month pet oxygen masks were distributed free of charge by PetSafe® Australia to various pet hospitals, care facilities and rescue centres across Australia, following the recent devastating and deadly bushfires; as part of the US based Project BreatheTM Program.

“The Project BreatheTM Program is essentially a program that supplies pet oxygen masks to fire departments throughout the USA”, comments Zarqa Ali from PetSafe® Australia, “Their goal is to ensure every fire department and rescue unit is equipped with this life-saving mask to help animals of all sizes”.

To date they have donated more than 23,500 masks to fire stations across the US and Canada.

“We worked closely with Radio Systems Corporation, where the Invisible Fence Brand falls under, when we found out about the devastation across Australia and the effect it was having on our wildlife and working together we managed to distribute masks to numerous sanctuaries and animal hospitals across the country”.

Each mask costs around $100 AUD, PetSafe® Australia secured 35 for distribution across Australia.

The Pet Oxygen Masks are reusable, and fit perfectly on any of our indigenous animals. They are saving numerous koalas, kangaroos, wombats and other small animals.

“We would love for a program like this to be launched here in Australia”, continues Zarqa, “and that is something that PetSafe® would definitely support. In the meantime we will continue to help any rescues and sanctuaries dealing with the influx of injured wildlife when and where we can”.

Locations that received the masks include:

✔️ Gumby’s Kangaroo & Wildlife Sanctuary
✔️ Southern Cross Wildlife Care
✔️ Strong Hearts Farm Sanctuary
✔️ Bush Roo’s Rescue
✔️ Gippsland Shelters
✔️ Clover Run Wildlife Sanctuary
✔️ Namagadi Nature Reserve
✔️ Southern Animal Hospital
✔️ Vets for Compassion
✔️ Minton Farm Animal Rescue
✔️ Port Macquarie Koala Sanctuary
