Cat rescued with one of masks donated to fire dept. by two little girls
BOULDER, Colo. -- Boulder firefighters saved the life of a cat Wednesday
by using a special oxygen mask.
The masks were donated to the Boulder Fire Rescue Department in 2008 by
two girls who sold jewelry to raise the money for the specialized animal
equipment. Clara Grainger and Isabel Lippincott told 7NEWS in 2008 that they
bought 15 masks. One week after the masks were donated, firefighters said
they used a pet oxygen mask to revive a dog rescued from a house fire.

Wake up Gilpin County - The Gilpin Fire Dept refused a donation of these
masks - claimed they don't' work!
