Canine Gives: Giving back to our communities
Canine Company's mission is to help pet parents keep their dogs and cats healthy, safe and happy. That mission extends to our philanthropic efforts too. We give back to the community by supporting pet welfare organizations and other initiatives that enhance the bond between pets and people.
Last year, we donated more than $100,000 to support rescue and adoption, pet owner education and service animal programs.

Another Way We Help Keep Your Pets Happy, Safe and Healthy
When fire strikes a family's home, pets are more likely than people to suffer severe smoke inhalation. That's because they can't get out of the house without help. Sadly, more than 40,000 pets across the country die each year because first responders don't have the right equipment to resuscitate them on the scene.
The goal of our Canine Saves campaign is to ensure that firefighters and EMTs in the communities we serve have the tools they need to resuscitate the pets they rescue.
The specially designed pet oxygen masks we donate are cone-shaped masks so they fit over a pet's snout. Each set we donate includes three sizes that work on a wide range of pets - from small mammals to giant breed dogs. Since the beginning of 2016, we've donated:

And, our donations are saving pets' lives!
Every month, we learn about rescues in which first responders put the masks to use. Here are two stories about those saves:
