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.
