Cat Pulled from Fire is Revived by Paramedic

Paramedic Shane Collette of Rural Metro Fire spoke with a reporter in the video report below, telling how he used a pet oxygen mask to save a cat pulled from a fire at its home in Queen Creek, Maricopa County, AZ this morning. Firefighters at first thought the cat didn’t survive. It was limp, had foam coming out of its mouth, and its eyes were red before Collette administered oxygen for about 15 minutes. Kitty came around and was returned to its grateful family.

Staff at a local veterinary practice  put in their own money at Christmas and bought a selection of pet oxygen masks that they gave to the fire department.

    I so wish that all the cruelty and sadness would end in this world. We call ourselves human beings but it is the greed and heartlessness of the human being that causes the pain these animals have to endure.
