Pilots N Paws is a remarkable non-profit organization that pairs volunteer pilots with animal rescue shelters across the United States in order to transport rescued animals to wherever they have the best chance at life.
Sometimes a shelter may not have enough room to house any more animals. Under normal circumstances, if those animals cannot find anywhere else to go locally and they're in a kill shelter ... well, it's not a pretty picture. In many cases it is deemed cost-prohibitive to transport the animals to another shelter that may have had room and a long journey by road could be potentially traumatizing.
Thanks to programs like Pilots N Paws, however, those puppies can be quickly and safely transported to places where they have a much better chance of being adopted into a loving forever home. Because the pilots are all volunteering their time, the issue of cost becomes largely negligible.
