Family Owned & Operated. Bringing You Quality Military Surplus Since 2010.
Welcome to GRANDPOPSARMYNAVY!
The MIRA Safety FirstBreed Collapsible CBRN Animal Ark (Ark for short) is a reusable dome designed to protect pets from exposure to hazardous chemical 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.
The Ark 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.
