His mother says that Finn Sullivan has a “heart of gold” and loves animals.
As it turns out, the 11-year-old DeForest boy, who attends school in the Sun Prairie Area School District, is also relentless when fighting for something he believes in.
Starting when he was 10, Finn began working to convince fire departments around Wisconsin to buy oxygen masks for pets affected by fires.
“I got an email from Finn back in January around the first of the year,” said City of Madison Fire Chief Steven A. Davis. “You could tell from the email that he was passionate about the cause, that he was passionate about saving dogs and cats.”
Davis was persuaded. His department purchased two sets of them, which includes small, medium and large masks, for $170.
