    Great Story. I wish all firefighters could have the animal oxygen equipment.

  13. Cat should get checked out at vet, like with humans, smoke inhalation can have long term effects. I’m a vet tech, and have treated a # of pets rescued from fires over the years. Well Done, Mr. Collectte!

    I’m inspired now, we have lots of bush fires here in Australia and I am going to check and see if our local fire brigade have pet oxygen masks. If not, time for some fundraising. Great work Shane.

  28. Deb says:

    I’ve seen many a video of oxygen masks being used on rescued pets, with success I’ll add; but knowing there are actually oxygen masks designed specifically for animals – well that is something! I’m very grateful to Shane and his obvious love of animals for saving this furry family member. If I’m even in such a situation, I hope our furbabies are saved.

  29. Druscilla says:

    Firefighters are such heroes, because they save so many animals too, it’s like they won’t let anyone suffer such horrible death, including our furry friends! Amazing! <3
