WHAT WAG'N HAS ACCOMPLISHED

Since its inception in 2008, the Wag'N O2 Fur Life Program has provided over 13,243 pet oxygen masks kits to more than 5,083 Fire & EMS departments in North America. With the help of generous individuals and corporate partners, we estimate that up to 10,000 Fire Departments and 2,500 EMS Vehicles have now acquired at least 1 pet oxygen mask kit.

While those numbers are impressive, that's just 33.64% Fire Departments and roughly 3.19 % 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.™
