Today, December 15, 2022, is the 11th anniversary of the day our beautiful rescue dog, Blue, died when he suffocated in a Frito Lay Cheetos chip bag. I will never forget the horrifying shock of finding him. I think of him every time we lose another innocent pet to suffocation. Like so many others, I had never heard of pet suffocation until it happened to my dog.
It is also the day I vowed to start a mission to spread awareness on the dangers of pet suffocation from chip bags and other food packaging. That mission, Prevent Pet Suffocation, is now a non-profit. We have made huge strides with our international awareness campaign to educate the public on how to prevent pet suffocation which happens daily, and within minutes.
Blue serves as the "poster dog" for pet suffocation as Prevent Pet Suffocation continues to work hard to make sure awareness and prevention of pet suffocation becomes common knowledge. However, it would not be this successful without all of you - the loyal followers, supporters, and advocates who continue to support this mission with your positive feedback and your dedication to sharing the posts and messages. Numerous dogs and cats have been saved, and we will continue to spread the word!
Sadly, our pets and wildlife are still losing their lives in food bags and containers, but with your help, we can keep moving forward. So, in honor of Blue and all the other pets we have lost to suffocation, please consider making a donation today - no amount is too small!
