Smokey Paws aims to get specially designed pet oxygen masks into the UK fire service and wherever multiple animals exist such as wildlife sanctuaries, kennels.

Paw Pals has recently purchased a complete oxygen mask kit, which will be donated to a fire station in need of such equipment, to help those pets who might need medical help in the event of being caught up in a fire, we shall bring you more on this story in the future. For more information about Smokey Paws, please read their story and continual work below.

About Smokey Paws!

Smokey Paws is a not for profit organisation on a big pet lifesaving mission. Smokey Paws aims to get specially designed pet oxygen masks into the UK fire service and wherever multiple animals exist such as wildlife sanctuaries, kennels and catteries so that pets have a better chance of survival.

With 46% of UK households owning pets and with over 42,000 housefire in the UK alone last year, there is no wonder over 2 Million Brits have lost pets in housefires, not to mention how many animals could come to need them in wildlife sanctuaries and rehoming centres. Smokey Paws believes that if oxygen is available at the scene it should be used as effectively as possible, alongside specially shaped pet oxygen masks which would enable the pet to get 95%- 100% oxygen as opposed to only 5% if using the human oxygen masks. 
 
Smokey Paws was set up by Brian Lockyer and Lynn Carberry. It started when they were discussing how they would get their Labrador out in a house fire and they noticed that these pet oxygen masks are widely available in America but weren’t available yet here in the UK.
 
Smokey Paws Founder Brian Lockyer says “Specially designed pet oxygen masks are more effective on pets than the human masks often used to try and revive pets by first responders. By providing one special animal oxygen kit for each fire engine in the country as well as providing them to sanctuaries and shelters, we hope to enable first responders to save even more animals lives.”
