Club News

Recently, fire departments in Maryland's Somerset and Worcester counties were provided with pet oxygen mask kits by the Salisbury Maryland Kennel Club Charitable Trust (SMKCCT). Wicomico County, Maryland fire stations will also be receiving additional kits to supplement those distributed earlier by the Trust.

The masks have already been pressed into service -- an unconscious dog in Wicomico County was revived with the kit after being rescued from a house fire.
