Local residents Jane Kinnear and Pam Campling this week donated twelve pet oxygen masks to Humberside Fire and Rescue Service.
Over £1000 was raised through an organised walk established by Jane and Pam, which in turn was used to fund twelve pet oxygen masks from Smokey Paws, the creators of the masks.
Jane’s friend tragically lost her two dogs following a house fire in Surrey in November, and this in turn inspired her to raise money for Smokey Paws.
Smokey Paws pet oxygen masks are proven to help save an animal’s life following inhalation of smoke, and they come in different sizes, depending on the animal.
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service frequently use the masks to provide oxygen to animals, particularly following a house fire.
The money raised by Jane, Pam and the fifteen dogs and owners during the organised walk has helped to provide an additional twelve pet oxygen masks on fire engines in the Beverley, Driffield, Hornsea, East Hull, Market Weighton, Patrington, Pocklington, Preston, Withernsea, Howden, Brough and the Calvert Lane Station in the Hull area.
