• There are 78,258 credentialed EMS vehicles in the U.S.
• As reported by the National Fire Protection Association, fire departments responded to fire departments responded to an estimated 1,319,500 fires in 2017.

• 66% of U.S. households own at least one pet. That equates to 86.9 million pets (minimum) that deserve lifesaving in the event of a home fire or catastrophe.
WHAT WAG'N HAS ACCOMPLISHED
Since its inception in 2008, the Wag'N O2 Fur Life Program has provided over 13,000 pet oxygen masks kits to more than 5,250 Fire & EMS departments in North America. With the help of generous individuals and corporate partners, we estimate that up to 10,500 Fire Departments and 2,700 EMS Vehicles have now acquired at least 1 pet oxygen mask kit.
While those numbers are impressive, that's just 35.21% of Fire Departments and roughly 3.45 % of EMS Vehicles in the United States!*
As you can see, there is still much more work to do in getting every department outfitted with pet lifesaving oxygen masks.
So Let's Keep Wag'N!
Each Wag'N O2 Fur Life Kit Now Offers More!
Thank you for supporting your local first responders and our mission of helping them save more pets lives!
Because the pet's life they save may be your own.™
