Austin's Bravest needs your help! Our furry friends are a huge part of our families here in Austin, and when able, our Austin firefighters have had the pet oxygen masks necessary to enable them to give our furry family members a fighting chance when rescued from a fire scene. Unfortunately these donated resources are aging and ending their useful life, requiring new donors step in and answer the call of providing the resources necessary to keep providing these type of rescue efforts to our four-legged friends in the future!
The Auxiliary to Austin Firefighter Association Local 975, a local 501 c 3 charity, has stepped up to answer this challenge and is reaching out to all of Central Texas to help raise the funds necessary to keep these rescue efforts and our family friends alive!!!
$5,000 NOW is what it will take to update, replace and re-stock current inventory of pet ventilation masks for AFD, while additional funds will help insure our ability to keep supporting these efforts well into the future! We are setting a goal of $25,000 to insure the long-term sustainability of supplying these resources to AFD.
Your tax-deductible donations can help insure the Auxiliary is able to provide these resources for years to come!
