Pilots N Paws
After the disturbing pet story I posted the other day, in particular commenting about the many dogs stuck in shelters that need homes, I thought it would be fun to post a good story and video about Pilots N Paws. I heard about it watching the Today show while eating breakfast this morning. The organization is a group of pilots who work with animal shelters to fly dogs and cats to different areas of the country where they are wanted. Many animals are euthanized after a while because the shelters are so overcrowded and there aren't enough homes locally for the dogs. With this program, pilots help by transporting pets to new owners in different parts of the country. It's just another example of what animal lovers will do for one another and for their furry, four-legged friends. For more about the organization click here, or watch the great video below (it begins after a 30-second commercial). If you're getting this post via email and the video hasn't come through, click here to go to the full entry for this post where you'll see the video.
