Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Fargo Firefighters are now more prepared to save your pets in an emergency. The Fargo-Moorhead humane society donated pet oxygen masks to the Fire Department.

The masks are specially designed to fit over a snout and provide emergency oxygen to pets.

Before getting the masks, firefighters could do little to help pets besides removing them from the dangerous area.

Jamie Garvey- Fargo Fire Department: "I think it's a good partnership. It's something that people care about. People care deeply about their pets, the Humane Society is there to take care of and help pets."

Firefighters urge homeowners to get their family out first in an emergency,

and let the firefighters retrieve their pets.
