Massachusetts Vet Hospital Raises Money For Animal Oxygen Masks

Fundraiser started by Mass. Vet Hospital for animal oxygen masks.

Bulger Veterinary Hospital, a 24-hour emergency, general practice and specialty referral facility in North Andover, Mass. is raising money to provide local fire stations with oxygen masks for pets. The fundraiser began in March and will continue through June.

The practice’s goal is to raise enough funds to donate 134 oxygen mask kits to fire stations in surrounding towns and cities that have declared a need. To date, the practice has raised enough money to purchase more than 75 oxygen mask kits.
 
Bulger initiated the fundraising because effects of smoke inhalation can be fatal if not treated quickly, yet fire stations are often not equipped to treat the animals they save from fires, according to the hospital.

The fundraiser began at Bulger Veterinary Hospital then expanded to the Methuen Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Lowell Humane Society, which assisted by donating a raffle basket and hosting fund raising drives on behalf of Bulger.

Beneficiaries of oxygen mask donations include fire stations in 19 Massachusetts towns and six towns in New Hampshire. To make a donation to the Bulger Veterinary Hospital fundraiser, call (978) 682-9905.
