Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets Her Wings

Share This Story!

With only twenty minutes to spare before euthanasia, four dedicated PNP pilots teamed together to give Angel the wings that flew her to safety.

Angel’s trek from North Carolina to her new home in Colorado began when pilot Keith Decker flew her to Knoxville, Tennessee where pilot Jim Carney was waiting to complete the second leg of the flight to Kennett, Missouri. From there, Angel flew with pilot Jim Bordoni to Kansas City, Kansas. Finally, pilot Mitchell completed the last leg of Angel’s journey and brought her to her new family in Fort Collins, Colorado.

After glancing at a picture of Angel peering out from the window of his plane, pilot Jim Bordoni said, “I absolutely love this picture and get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I look at it. It makes all of the flying and work worthwhile.”

    Angels of mercy. Tremendous acts of kindness and love. She looks so much like a dog I had to have put down due to old age that was a complete angel. Love this story. Wonderful outcome.

    You can tell by looking at the picture that she knows something is up but not sure what. I hope we get to see pictures after she realizes she is saved

    Absolutely priceless and yes I understand, a horse I saved has the same effect, when going gets down, take a look at who makes it all worthwhile. Fantastic selfless services guys!
