Locals to the Rescue with Oxygen Masks for Pets
They rescue men, women and children in dire need. But the Marion County Fire Rescue team had limited equipment to save man's best friend as well.
A group of locals chipped in about $600 dollars to purchase eight sets of oxygen masks for pets. The masks where handed over by Anita Winter who organized and gathered the donations, along with the help of Molly, a mild-mannered Sheppard mix.
"They are willing to risk their lives to go back in," Winter said of firefighters. "Then lets make sure that they have all the equipment to save the animal once they get it out."
Molly is looking for a good home. She is about five years old and has lived at the Marion County Animal Services Shelter since February.
For information on Molly (ID #A037800), contact Marion County Animal Services at 352-671-8700.
