THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR CHALLENGE IN 2015. WE COULDN'T KEEP FLYING DOGS AND CATS TO FOREVER HOMES WITHOUT YOU!
Starting on May 4, 2015, Wings of Rescue is excited to join the 2015 Saving Pets Challenge to compete to win up to $50,000 in funding to support our organization's mission to work with a network of private pilots and chartered flights to fly dogs and cats from areas with high percentages of shelter euthanasia to areas around the country where there is a need for adoptable animals.
To date, Wings of Rescue has flown over 12,000 pets to freedom. Because of all of our incredible partnerships and flight prep (spay/neuter, health certificates, vaccinations, micro-chips and heart worm testing), the animals who are transported are able to be adopted within 12-24 hours of landing in their new hometown. Many are adopted right on the spot.
Not only is Wings of Rescue helping the animals who are being flown to new homes, but we are also freeing up space in the shelter for new animals to have a chance to get adopted. So Wings of Rescue is essentially helping in two ways, and we wouldn't be able to do this without the help of our incredible team of supporters and volunteers - our Wings of Rescue Flight Crew!
The funds from this Challenge will partially go towards supporting our exciting new endeavors such as our "When Pitties Fly!" program which involved Wings of Rescue saving 16 pitbulls each month and flying them to the border of Canada where they will be transported to the Calgary area to get adopted.
Funds will also be used to support our Alaskan cat transports where cats will be flown to partner organizations in Alaska with a shortage of felines. Your gifts to support us in this Challenge will be helping these animals that are overlooked and many have given up hope in saving. We knew we had to do something, and so, we made the impossible possible with your help!
So please join our Flight Crew this month and support our Saving Pets Challenge campaign so we can start flying even more animals to freedom. While we appreciate and need supporters of every level during this challenge, members of our Flight Crew will receive the following benefits if they make a gift of $100 or more:
- For our members who donate $100 and above, we will send you a Wings of Rescue t-shirt.
- For our members who donate $250 and above, we will send you your rescue wings - a Wings of Rescue lapel pin
- For both the member who raises the most money through their Wings of Rescue Crowdrise campaign, and the member who makes the largest donation during the challenge, you will win the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the co-pilot of one of our next rescue flights.
We hope you consider making a gift today to Wings of Rescue. The friendly skies await... more dogs and cats!
