They look like props out of an alien-invasion movie, but they could help the Boston Fire Department save your pet’s life.

Sixty pet oxygen masks were donated to the Boston Fire Department today by WellPet, a natural pet food company, and the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association Charities.

“The Fire Department does an outstanding job protecting the residents of Boston,” said Mayor Thomas M. Menino. “These mask kits will give them the tool they need to protect our pets, which are also a part of many Boston families.”

This donation was part of a larger goal set by the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association Charities to supply every town in the state with at least one such mask. The organization has already donated these masks to over 130 fire departments in the state.
