VENTURA [california] (CBSLA.com) — The Emma Zen Foundation will donate nearly 100 pet oxygen masks to the Ventura County Fire Department Thursday.

The Orange County-based foundation will provide the fire engines with three different sized masks.

The Emma Zen Foundation President Debra-Jo Chiapuzio told KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz and Jan Stevens the masks are specifically designed to fit muzzles and snouts of a wide range of household pets.

“The small works on somebody as small as a baby kitten, or a tiny puppy or even a bird,” Chiapuzio said. “I actually have a 105-pound Great Dane and she’s got plenty of room inside of the large mask.”

The non-profit organization raises funds to donate the masks, which allow constant and direct flow of clean oxygen to pets suffering from smoke asphyxiation and other breathing difficulties, to fire departments.

When I was on a rural fire dept we learned how to do mouth to mouth on pets. Glad I never had to!

Ventura is about 25 minutes from here - hadn’t heard this yet. Gotta read the newspaper more.
