APPLETON, Wis. - Pets here will be breathing a little easier now that local rescuers will be carrying oxygen masks designed for animals.
Six Appleton fire trucks and 13 ambulances will be equipped with masks intended for use on dogs, cats and other small animals.
Alderman Richard Thompson initiated the program after he saw a newspaper photograph of a firefighter in Superior giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a cat rescued from a house fire. (Associated Press)
