LUGOFF, S.C. – (WMBF) –Dr. Brian Spilker of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery in Lugoff purchased and donated 28 pet oxygen mask kits for every fire pumper truck in Kershaw County, including Lugoff, Camden, and all county fire departments to help save animal lives following structural fires. 

“Having these kits on all of our firefighting pumpers allows us the ability to revive pet animals with masks specifically designed for conscious and unconscious pets when we are able to safely rescue them from structural fires," said Lugoff Fire Rescue Chief Dennis Ray.

Each kit contains one small, one medium, and one large pet oxygen mask for various size pets, as well as training materials and documentation sheets in a carry bag. 

“We extend our sincere appreciation to Dr. Spilker for sponsoring these pet oxygen kits and for the success all over our state of the Pet Oxygen Kit Project,” Ray said. 

For more information about the Pet Oxygen Kit Project, Wag’N O2 Fur Life or to become a sponsor, email Mary Ellen Tobias at Maryellen.tobias49@gmail.com or Nena Sinclair at nenaloveshorses@live.com.
