Two dogs saved by donated Pet Oxygen Mask kit from Project Paws Alive

IMG_5105b“On 12/30/2015 at 7:25am, the York City Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire.  Crews arrived on the scene to find heavy fire showing from two homes and rapidly spreading.  Crews found the occupant who advised everyone was out but his two dogs were still inside.

As crews worked to extinguish the fire, they also searched for and found two Chihuahuas inside the home.  The dogs were removed, one appeared to be alright and the other was in sever distress.  The dog was limp and barley breathing.  Crews grabbed the pet resuscitation mask from Engine 99-2 and along with crews from White Rose Ambulance administrated high flow oxygen.  After approximately 10 minutes of care, the dogs started to respond.

Both dogs were transported to a local emergency veterinarian.  Both dogs have fully recovered and have been reunited with the owner”. –  Chief David Michaels

Eagle Scout Project for Rock Hill, SC Police K-9

Troop 277. Matthew Weaving, a Life Scout in Troop 277 of St. Anne’s Catholic Church in Rock Hill, South Carolina has begun his Eagle Scout Project. Matthew, with the help of his troop will construct a K-9 Kennel for a new Rock Hill Police K-9 officer and his new bloodhound partner. The kennel will consist of a 12 ft. by 12 ft. concrete pad with a 10 ft. by 10 ft. welded wire kennel, a large dog house, and a metal roofed shelter over the entire kennel. Donations of materials still leave the necessity of raising $500 to see this project completed.Zvu3y_AuSt_6

Weaving has teamed up with nationwide 501(c)3 nonprofit Project Paws Alive to accept donations to help complete the project. Since 2012 Project Paws Alive has provided equipment, training, and other vital items to underfunded law enforcement, fire, search & rescue, and military K9s nationwide. All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the donations will go directly to the Rock Hill Police K9 Kennel project by Life Scout in Troop 277 under the leadership of Matthew Weaving.

Giving Tuesday – Helping Working K9s

GT-K9What is #GivingTuesday? We have a day for giving thanks. We have two shopping days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Please join us and be a part of a new nationwide movement to draw awareness to nonprofits.

Today we ask you to consider purchasing one of our K9 Hero Dogs or making a donation to help provide vital protective equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s. K9 Units are typically classified as non-essential teams and therefore receive little or no budget. Many are run solely on donations received from nonprofits such as ours, and many of them cannot accept direct donations. They rely on us for items such as K9 first aid kits, bullet and stab-protective K9 vests, K9 cooling vests, K9 heat alarms and more.

Picture1K9 Hero Dogs can be purchased directly on our PPA Shop page and are tax-deductible.

Donations can be made online via our Donate buttons or mailed to our office at Project Paws Alive, 1911 Grayson Highway, Suite 8-158, Grayson, GA 30017.  All donations are tax-deductible as we are registered 501c3 nonprofit and we do participate in corporate matching and grant campaigns.

For other ways to join us, volunteer or help please see our “How You Can Help” page.

On behalf of the Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s benefiting from your support, I wish to extend my sincerest appreciation and invite you to stay connected with us to watch how your contributions are having life-saving effects on the working K9s in your community.

Best Regards,Lakota Kit
