Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our Pet Oxygen Mask Kits are a vital tool needed in saving a pet suffering from respiratory distress. A small donation can save a small life, over and over again!<br/><br/>Giving the K9 handler the tools and supplies needed to treat an injury on the spot, could make the difference between life and death!

Informing the public of these dangers to both family pets as well as working K-9 teams that exist to aid and assist the community in the toughest and most dangerous situations. Creating a network of financially supporting funders to help us continue our mission. We will promote funding the donation of these life saving kits thru fundraiser Pet first aid classes, attending benefits shows hosted by other supporting charities that also lend aid to animals and working K9 teams.

Volunteers and specially equipped vehicles owned and maintained by our volunteers. Fully stocked and maintained animal medical transport and constant communication with local Fire Departments, County Incident command services and other legally governed Animal Rescues

Open communication with existing division analysts in the fire department of San Bernardino county and the K-9 Officers in every city accessible to us.

In our first year, we have organised a Pet First Aid and CPR Class for 20 students, placed over 10 Pet Oxygen Kits on fire engines and extracted live stock, dogs and cats during 5 major fires in California. We have also outfitted 3 Working K-9 teams with canine IFAK pouches. We have placed over 45 Canine Trauma Kits throughout the United States, including Alaska. We continue to pursue the development of new fundraising exercises, such as bake sales guest speaker opportunities. This year we plan to expand our volunteer base and continue fundraising at multiple events throughout the year. We are still pursuing an animal grant proposal writer to increase the revenue of 2019. Our donated medical equipment is only restricted by the amount of financial support we attain.
