General aviation doesn’t just connect people, it can also help rescue animals find loving homes.
In Colorado and Indiana this week, private pilots in the Pilots N Paws network flew rescue dogs from shelters to their new families in other states. Being able to fly the animals to different states opens up a larger area, helping increase the chance of adoption particularly for large or disabled pets. Pilots N Paws is a national non-profit connecting pilots and plane owners who volunteer to transport animals and shelters and rescues across the country. Today, Pilots N Paws has over 5000 pilot volunteers helping save thousands of animals.
