Giving Guide: Pilots N Paws

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Our first featured organization is:

Pilots N Paws is an online volunteer organization where general aviation pilots can connect with rescue volunteers to transport animals in need to safe havens.  The first official flight took place on February 8, 2008. Since then, the number of small-plane general aviation pilot volunteers has climbed to over 1,800, with 8200 registered users participating on the website. Our goal is to have 10,000 pilots so that few transport requests go unanswered.  From cross state trips, to international missions to assist soldiers overseas to bring adopted dogs home, Pilots N Paws works to help anyone in need of transport.         

"Every time an animal is saved from euthanasia, an abusive situation, or any other hardship they encounter, that's our most rewarding moment. Our biggest obstacle has been reaching out and letting general aviation pilots know we are here. Once they know we exist, most are more than willing to join and help with our efforts."
