Pilots N Paws

174 DOGS AND ONE
KITTY FLOWN OUT OF SOUTH CAROLINA IN ONE OF
THE LARGEST ANIMAL RESCUES IN U.S.
HISTORY


Of
the thousands of rescue flights Pilots N Paws has made since its inception, the
3rd Annual Awareness Rescue Flight is an acute reminder of why
Pilots N Paws exists. In March of this year, Deborah Farhi, a volunteer with
the Chesterfield County Animal Shelter in South Carolina, noticed many of the dogs in
the shelter were missing. Upon questioning, shelter volunteers accused four
local animal control officers of shooting 22 of the dogs in their care to death
instead of euthanizing them through the approved, humane methods.

About
Pilots N Paws:

Since
the program began in February 2008, pilots have donated their time, planes and
fuel to fly thousands of dogs from shelters where they faced certain death due
to overcrowded shelters and pet overpopulation due to lack of pet
sterilization. Some areas of the country are more likely to have overcrowded
shelters and limited adoption opportunities. At www.pilotsnpaws.org,
pilots can learn about animals in need and work directly with shelters and
rescue groups to coordinate transportation. More than 8,000 shelters and
rescues, along with 2,000 volunteer pilots are registered on the site
