North Country Kennel Club, Inc. Donates Pet Rescue Kits to local Fire Departments

On Wednesday, January 11, 2012 the North Country Kennel Club presented the Watertown Fire Department with three sets of Pet Resuscitation Kits to be used with their existing oxygen equipment.  Club President Jeannine McKnight and club members Jean Dean and Dr. Teresa Dewey were on hand with their dogs for the presentation.  We hope these kits will never be needed, but we are comforted by knowing they are available if a beloved family pet is ever in need of life-saving measures.

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Often times pets are lost due to smoke inhalation in house fires, and families are devastated.  Now the North Country Kennel Club, Inc. is hoping to help make fatality rates of pets in house fires decline. 

In the spirit of Fire Prevention Month, Jeannine McKnight, president of the North Country Kennel Club, Inc., presented a pet rescue kit to the Clayton Fire Department on Saturday, October 6, 2012.  A week later Melissa L. Ordway and Lori Krebs, board members of the club, presented a kit to the Ringgold Fire Company in Pulaski, NY.  Since then we have made donations to the Sandy Creek Volunteer FD, Lacona FD, Ellisburg FD, Orwell FD, Pennellville FD, Brownville FD, Cape Vincent FD, and LaFargeville FD.   

The pet rescue kits each contain three pet recovery oxygen masks in various sizes.  There is one to fit cats and small dogs, one for medium-sized dogs, and one for large dogs.  The kits also contain tubing that connects to the fire departments existing oxygen equipment.  The masks can be used in the resuscitation of animals that have been rescued from a house fire and have experienced smoke inhalation or are in respiratory distress.

“It is our hope that these kits will never have to be put to use.  However, should the need arise, the fire departments that we have donated the pet rescue kits to now have the means to help out an animal and hopefully save the life of a beloved family pet,” said Melissa L. Ordway, secretary of the North Country Kennel Club, Inc.

The group has been donating pet rescue kits to various fire departments around Jefferson and Oswego Counties, and they hope to make similar donations in the future.  Any fire or rescue department in Jefferson or Oswego County that would like a pet rescue kit is encouraged to contact the club for more details.

North Country Kennel Club, Inc. raises funds to purchase and donate K9 bullet and stab resistant vests for local working K9s 

The North Country Kennel Club, Inc. is very excited to report that we have been able to provide all of the working canines in the Watertown Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, and the Fulton Police Department with protective vests!  With help from Mr. Ben Wiese from Lewis Uniform Company in Syracuse, NY we are able to purchase these vests at a very generously discounted price.  We would like to thank everyone who donated to this cause.  You helped make our goal a reality for these working K9s, and they now have the protection they desperately needed.

By providing these dogs with the same bulletproof vests worn by our law enforcement officers, we can help protect them from harm.  Today’s working K9s in law enforcement are put in mortal danger when doing their jobs. Whether searching for criminals, explosives or drugs, these dogs work in hazardous situations, and are vulnerable to attack.  The K9 handlers invest an enormous amount of time, emotion, and their own money on training and caring for these working K9s; however, providing the protective gear they need is an economic challenge for their departments.  Most police departments and law enforcement  agencies do not budget for bulletproof vests for their K9s. We believe these four-legged partners deserve the same protection as each of their two-legged officers are given.  These brave, faithful dogs risk their lives to protect us, and we are happy to protect them.  

Kennel Looking For Donations For K-9 bulletproof Vests

On Monday, June 10, 2013 NCKC was contacted by Kylie Powell.  She and her daughther, Jenna, saw the above article in the Watertown Daily Times on Friday, June 7, 2013, and wanted to help.  Jenna had been planning a yard sale to raise money for a charity.  After reading the article Jenna decided she wanted to donate all the proceeds from her sale to the NCKC K9 bullet proof vest fundraiser.  The Powell family held an extremely successful sale on Saturday, June 22, and Jenna donated all $600 that she profited to our cause!  Officer Maney with the Watertown PD even stopped by with K9 Nico to say thanks!
