From our friends at NBS Animal Rescue — can you spot our little Sweetpea? One day he was ravaged by maggots and now he’s hanging out with firefighters. Sweetpea was also on Fox 2 Detroit on Saturday and Sunday (8/25 and 8/26) demonstrating the oxygen mask. ~ diana
“NBSAR volunteers, board members, and canines Corbin and Sweet Pea hit the streets to deliver Pet Oxygen Mask kits to the Detroit Precinct 1 Fire Department and the Warren Fire Department. Both departments were so gracious and excited to have the Pet Oxygen Mask kits for the rigs. You can see the story on Fox 2 tonight at 6PM and 10PM where our fearless leader, Rebecca Akins, talks about our fundraiser with our under 18 volunteers, Jonas and Bailey.
We raised over $1,500 last month and ordered 19 kits to pass out to local fire departments. Warren received 3 today. Detroit received 11. Clawson and Washington will be receiving their kits next weekend.
Both Detroit and Warren were so thankful to us for thinking of them and their needs. Budgets have been cut for public services and there is rarely enough money to buy all the things they need, especially for our canine and feline companions.
We hope they never are in the position to need them, but they are now equipped with the kits to help save lives if they do.”
