  • Pet Mask Kit donation

    On Wednesday, February 2, several Elk Creek, Bloomfield and Finchville businesses gathered together to donate pet mask kits to area fire departments. The masks are helpful for fire departments when a pet needs to be rescued from a house fire. Human oxygen masks are not the right size for pets, and often, even if a pet is rescued, they succumb to smoke inhalation. These masks can also help keep the fire fighters from being bitten during a rescue. Each kit has 3 masks in multiple sizes for dogs, cats and smaller animals such as ferrets.
