Animal Welfare – New tool for firefighters to save pets

A major manufacturer of dog and cat food sold under
Wal-Mart,
Safeway,
Kroger and
other store brands recalled 60 million containers of wet pet food Friday after
reports of kidney failure and deaths.

An
unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about 10 died after
eating the affected pet food, Menu Foods said in announcing the North American
recall. Product testing has not revealed a link explaining the reported cases of
illness and death, the company said.


The non-profit group H.E.L.P. Animals, Inc. is
devoted to the distribution of cup-shaped oxygen masks to fire departments in
order to save the lives of pets. The oxygen masks are versatile enough that they
can be used on most companion animals, including cats, dogs, reptiles and birds.
Thus far, they have distributed nearly 3,000 masks throughout North
America.

If you’d like to

for a minimal fee.
