Silver Lake Fire Department receives donation of pet masks

First Responders with the Silver Lake Fire Department are now equipped to save a pet’s life because Invisible Fence of Central Minnesota has donated two pet oxygen mask kits to the department. 
 
This donation is just a small part of Invisible Fence Brand’s Project Breathe program, which was established with the goal of equipping every fire station in America and Canada with pet oxygen masks. These masks allow firefighters and emergency medical staff to give oxygen to pets who are suffering from smoke inhalation when they are rescued from fires and often save pets’ lives.
 
Invisible Fence Brand has donated a total of more than 12,400 pet oxygen masks to fire stations all over the U.S. and Canada throughout the life of the program. A reported 120-plus pets have been saved by the donated masks so far, including a cat saved on Aug. 4 in Maple Grove, a department that just received a Project Breathe donation in July. 
 
 The Silver Lake area is now joining the ranks of cities like Seattle, Chicago, Denver and Salt Lake City, which have all received donated pet oxygen masks from Project Breathe program.
