Club Spotlight: Tualatin Kennel Club

The Tualatin Kennel Club of Oregon recently made a difference in their community by donating several pet oxygen mask kits to local fire stations in their area. Prior to receiving the kits, firefighters had masks designed only for humans, which severely limited their abilities to successfully resuscitate house pets.

Dr. Craig Bowen from the Tualatin Kennel Club visited the fire station in North Plains to present the kits, which will help save the lives of area pets. Check out this article from the Hillsboro Tribune for more about the club's great work.
