Wings of Rescue takes cats and dogs out of shelters with high euthanasia rates and transports them on long-distance journeys via our network of volunteer private pilots and chartered planes to areas around the country that have a need for adoptable pets. To get a dog or cat prepped and ready to fly to its new home, it costs approximately $80. This year, Wings of Rescue is prepared to transport over 7,000 animals to freedom via the friendly skies. And that's only the beginning. With additional funding, new networks can be established to save even more pets. With our ability to save this astonishing number of animals, comes the added benefit that we also free up kennel space in the shelter for new animals to get adopted. All it takes is one donation from you and each of your friends, and these pets will fly away to a better life. To make this dream a reality and join us flying over 7,000 animals a year to freedom, please create a fundraising page through Crowdrise. It takes less than a minute, and you will be able to easily reach out to all your friends and family to tell them about the amazing work that Wings of Rescue does for animals so they can support us as well. Join our Wings of Rescue Flight Crew today. You can be a part of our critical team who helps make these freedom flights a reality, and from your very own home!

Every day, amazing dogs wake up for the last time in animal shelters nationwide…

Dogs of all ages including pregnant dogs and their newborn puppies – spend their last day in a shelter and are euthanized simply due to lack of space. Too many dogs, not enough homes. We work every day to change that by providing desperately needed air transport for our rescue partners and the thousands of animals they save each year from high kill shelters in California. We fly these precious passengers in private airplanes to their new forever homes and rescue organizations up and down the west coast in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and even Canada.

We are the only all-volunteer organization to fly this number of pets to safety. We not only transport healthy dogs and cats but pregnant moms/moms with newly born babies/dogs with recent surgeries or animals in need of major surgical procedures. Ground transport is not the best option for these animals due to the sheer length of the road trip which can be in excess of 24 hours in the same crate without any food, water or walks. Most of our flights are completed in 3-4 hours.

Our work is funded completely from donations, the incredible generosity of our volunteer pilots and their planes and hundreds of rescue organizations up and down the West Coast. With your help the sky is truly the limit to how many animals we can save.
