Invisible Fence said it has donated more than 1,530 masks to more than 510 fire stations in the Carolinas and more than 10,000 to fire stations in the U.S. and Canada since 2008.More than 70 pets have been saved by the donated masks.
“Our commitment to pet safety extends beyond pet containment by funding deserving projects that help keep pets safe at home,” said Jim White, owner of Invisible Fence of Savannah/Hilton Head.
“By donating the pet oxygen masks, we hope to help save more pets and prevent pet owners from losing a beloved four-legged family member, while dealing with the devastation from a fire.”
Invisible Fence said 40,000 to 150,000 pets die each year in fires, most succumbing to smoke inhalation. More than 500,000 pets are affected by home fires each year.
