Our local Red Cross will teach animal CPR and First Aid-you just have to call them and set it up.

The Preston County Animal Shelter thru donations purchased 12 sets (sm,med,lg) of the pet rescue masks for our 12 Volunteer Rescue Units located in our large county.
These masks hook up to O2. and are washable and can be reused.

They have helped save one family pet in our County already that was in a house fire.

You can purchase these set thru H.E.L.P.com.

Wow! It is impressive that this fireman would go the extra mile to perform a life saving technique on a pet. Our local shelter offers Pet First Aid classes, and the American Red Cross offers Pet First Aid books. I think it is a wise investment for all pet owners to investigate these educational resources so they can be ready to perform this skill in times of need.

My husband is a firefighter, and unfortunately, pets are often the first casualties of house fires. Everyone that owns pets should post a notice(you can buy a special sign)in their window of how many pets they have.When an emergency arises, there will be info on your pets for rescue workers to see.

I still remember when it was deemed "weird" to give mouth to mouth to an animal and now it's an everyday occurance. Awesome how some people don't put values on any life. All living things deserve a chance.

AWWWWW I think that's fantastic...The first thing my cat would do in a fire is run and hide. My fear is that I would never be able to get my kids and all my pets out in time. I think it's great that there are people out there that our like that. Where do they learn to do mouth to mouth on pets I wonder. I've taken CPR would it be the same for pets? hmmmmm

Being a volunteer firefighter we always don't have a chance to save the animals. It is usually too late but when we do, it's an amazing feeling. We try and do our best and give each one of them a chance. They are just like people to my dept.

Gotta love those firefighters! I just love happy endings.

Not many people would be willing to save human lives, to risk their own, let alone for pets.

God Bless Them All!!!!

I think that is wonderful. I'm sure to most pet lovers their pet is just as much a part of the family as everyone else. I'm sure it wasn't just the cat that was greatful.

Don't blame him for the snake part! It takes a very special person to love
and RESPECT the lives of an innocent animal. A special thanks to the firefigher.

As someone who has done mouth to mouth on an animal to save it's life I must say people like this man are a blessing. There isn't a better feeling in this world than saving a life or bringing a new life into it.
