Second Alarmers Rescue Squad (SARS) will be receiving the donation of lifesaving Pet Oxygen Masks from the children of Upper Moreland Middle Schools Leo Club. The masks will be the first of their kind for SARS and were 100% fundraised by the children and will be presented at Upper Moreland Middle School on Thursday May 19th at 8:52 AM at the last all school assembly of the year.
The group of children have been fundraising all year round to provide these lifesaving items for our furry friends. SARS executive director Jamie Haddon stated, “Second Alarmers often gets called out to scenes of emergencies and have to improvise when helping out family pets. We are grateful for this donation that will go a long way in addressing a long overdue need.”
