FirstBreed Collapsible CBRN Animal Ark/ Dog Gas Mask
The MIRA Safety FirstBreed Collapsible CBRN Animal Ark (Ark for short) is a reusable dome designed to protect pets from exposure to hazardous chemicals and biological warfare agents, radioactive particles, and even the risk of smoke inhalation.
The Ark is effectively a “dog gas mask,” which deploys in seconds, folds flat, stores easily, and uses a powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) to create a compact, protective enclosure for your cherished pets. It is designed to give your pets the same life-saving protection you get from MIRA Safety Gas Masks. Traditionally, creating a dog gas mask has been challenging, considering pets have hair that prevents a tight seal.
Beyond that, pets are usually skittish during emergencies, presenting an additional challenge when trying to keep a device on the pet. Through several years of research and development, the Ark was born as a practical solution for many types of pets instead of creating separate devices for each one. With a lightweight, military-grade plastic frame and spacious interior, it uses the MB-90 PAPR (sold separately) and a set of 40mm NATO threaded filters for up to 12 hours of continuous use on one set of 8 AA batteries.
Dogs and cats are the most popular pets in the US, but the Ark can protect almost every other pet too, from rabbits to snakes and bearded dragons. We recommend placing any existing habitat for rodents and reptiles inside the Ark (as they can be more sensitive to environmental conditions).
Whether your goal is to prepare for potential nuclear conflict or just having a pet-safe gas mask to protect your family dog from the smoke of wildfire season, this is a perfect choice.
The Ark can be stored in its original packaging for up to 15 years and deployed in minutes to protect your animals comfortably.

— Instruction Manual
— The Ark is NOT intended for children or small humans.
— Requires a 40mm threaded PAPR to function (the MB-90 from MIRA — Safety is highly recommended as this unit was used throughout all laboratory testing).
— The Ark is designed to protect small animals (22lb or under), including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, rodents, ferrets, and reptiles. We have not tested the Ark with larger animals, so we cannot guarantee safe operation. Considering larger animals are usually stronger, they may try to escape using force, compromising the seal of the Ark and causing a leak.
— For animals with sharp claws, we recommend placing them into an enclosure inside of the Ark (such as a kennel, crate, etc).
