Last week, two pilots used their private plane to fly puppies to an unfilled shelter. As Pilots N Paws volunteers, Dan Drennan and Chuck DiBella flew from the Buffalo-Lancaster Regional Airport to the Gallia County and Meigs County animal shelters and picked up 13 dogs that were in danger of being euthanized. Now, the dogs have the opportunity to be adopted and find a new home. In fact, some of the dogs already had adoptive parents waiting for them in New York.
Pilots N Paws is an organization that flies in and rescues animals all across the country with the help of volunteer pilots. These voluntary flights have lowered the need to euthanize animals in shelters.
Pilots N Paws does not charge the shelters for transportation costs—pilots fund Pilots N Paws flights completely out of their own pockets.
