Warren County EMS, Warren County Animal Ark, and Vance County Animal Services recently partnered to ensure that all residents of Warren County are able to receive emergency care in their time of need – including four-legged residents. 

Through a partnership created by Vance County Animal Services and Mona Pants Foundations, an area nonprofit whose goal is to provide ballistic vests to law enforcement K-9s and oxygen masks to local first responders, Warren County EMS and Warren County fire departments have received 25 pet rescue oxygen mask kits. 

The 501(c)(3) organization, based in Zebulon, received a request on behalf of Warren County EMS to facilitate receiving the pet-oxygen rescue masks after noting recent animal fatalities in fires. In less than four hours, Mona Pants Foundation raised enough funds to procure the oxygen mask kits through donations only. 

A mask kit will be placed on every Warren County EMS unit as well as given to every Warren County fire department.
