“My Name was #35 but not any more!”
Last month, the ASPCA seized more then 40 dogs during an animal fighting investigation in Virginia. #35 was one of those dogs…..After medical care and testing, this lucky girl is now named “Hallie” and she is safely with Animal Farm Foundation in NY and on her way to a loving family.
It took two Pilots N Paws pilots working together to fly Hallie from harms way to safety. Pilot Nick O’Connel and co-pilot O’Neil Jones took the first leg from Virginia.
Pilot Bruce Cohen and co-pilot Adam Jackon were waiting to accept their very special passenger and take her on the final leg of her journey. Just seeing Hallie’s smiling grin and her joy for life was all these dedicated pilots needed to know to volunteer to fly her to safety.
Special thanks to the ASPCA all law enforcement agencies involved and the Animal control officers for investigating and ending the suffering of these dogs. Thanks to the efforts of local law enforcement, the 41 dogs recovered will have a chance to live out happier lives.
Grateful appreciation to the rescue groups accepting the dogs who so needed their loving care and to the local shelter for providing temporary care. We look forward to watching Hallie shine!
