LAKE TRAVIS, Texas (KXAN) — The Lake Travis Fire Department is now offering extra help for your pets in case of a fire.

Natural Pawz, the healthy pet food store, donated five new oxygen mask kits for saving pets in Travis County. Each kit cost an estimated $75 with three re-usable different sized oxygen masks for both cats and dogs.

Earlier this year, Natural Pawz donated 11 masks to the Round Rock Fire Department.

This piece of equipment may seem small, but it could be the difference between life and death for your pets.
