Their destination? New homes and non-kill shelters throughout the U.S.
Each year, Pilots N Paws holds a large rescue flyway event. This event has never taken place in Greenville. Last year, when it was held in Hinesville, Ga., 50 private pilots volunteered to fly more than 400 animals to safety and others joined in with vans for shorter, over land travel.
“Many healthy and adoptable animals are put down each year. While neutering or spaying animals is the ultimate goal because it helps reduce new births and overpopulation, there are animals that are already here that need to be saved,” stated Pilots N Paws President and Co-founder Debi Boies (left).
Pilots N Paws is a 501 c (3) charitable organization that has connected, via an online forum, over 4,200 volunteer general aviation pilots, from every state in the U.S., with people helping animals in need to organize lifesaving flights for over 60,000 animals. Portions of these flights are also tax deductible. Want to help? Volunteer pilots and donations are always needed. For more information, visit PilotsNPaws.org
