Oxygen masks donated to Humane Society

November 01, 2007

The Humane Society of Washington County has received three animal oxygen administration kits, donated to them by the Blue Ridge K-9 Training Center Club in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.

Members of the Training Center Club held fundraising activities to raise money for the kits, which are being distributed free of charge to local organizations that could potentially deal with animals in need of oxygen therapy.

The kits contain three sizes of masks and appropriate tubing for providing oxygen to animals in need. Emmitsburg Veterinary Hospital in Emmitsburg, Md. assisted the club in obtaining the kits.

The kits donated to HSWC will be placed in the three field service vehicles that are utilized throughout the county.

"We are really pleased to have these items available for use in an emergency situation," said Paul Miller, executive director of HSWC. "We hope we will never have to use them, but knowing we have them in the event of an emergency is very reassuring.
