The Cutest Copilots Ever….
“We either do it or the dogs die, so the choice is clear,” Wings of Rescue president and co-founder Yehuda Netanel told the Los Angeles Daily News.
Wings of Rescue is a nonprofit organization based in Van Nuys, California.
They have saved the lives of over 12,000 dogs since 2009. How did they do it? With the help of an incredible team of pilots, dedicated to rescuing and transporting shelter dogs to new homes around the country.
Wings of Rescue pilots, with the help of other volunteers, are able to transport animals who are close to being euthanized due to the extreme lack of space in California’s high-kill shelters.
Each year thousands of dogs are given new chances at life as they are flown across state lines to new owners, foster homes, humane societies, and rescue centers that have more room for these pups, who were knocking on doggy death row’s door.
These precious pups are given a chance to find the homes they deserve
“Every day, amazing dogs wake up for the last time…
Every day, animal shelters cannot accommodate the intake of new animals that have been literally abandoned on the streets, in the fields and in the backyards of foreclosed homes. Or, they have simply being surrendered by their owners because they can no longer care for their pets for reasons due to affordability or because they are just no longer wanted.
BUT, THEY ARE WANTED!!!
In different regions of the United States, and even in Canada, there are families waiting eagerly to adopt these AMAZING dogs!
Transporting these great dogs to safety and away from death row IS OUR MISSION! Air transport by private pilots is faster and less stressful on the dogs as opposed to being handled as “cargo” by commercial airliners.”
With over 12,000 lives already saved, the organization hopes to save 7,000 more this year.
“I am serious. And don’t call me Shirley.”
