Angel Gets Two Pairs of Wings

Share This Story!

I finally have 2 minutes to spare and want to share a very special flight that took place on Jan 28th. Angel, who had been rescued in the nick of time from Roanoke Rapids Animal Control, was originally supposed to be on the previous week’s flight to New Jersey with One Eyed Willie to the Eleventh Hour Rescue. To make a long story short, Angel was not on that flight.

I'm going to get a new home and am very excited.

Eleventh Hour was still hoping for Angel to join their rescue group, and we needed to get her from Roanoke Rapids, NC to NJ as soon as possible. Our flight request came in on late Friday afternoon. Michele McGuire and David Kenny stepped in right away and ironed out their flight plans within a few hours. What wonderful folks!

First class service.

Michele and her co-pilot Cheri were greeted at the Roanoke Rapids airport (IXA) by a very happy Angel and her team of volunteers, Betsy and Jennifer. Betsy and Jennifer had thoughtfully prepared a basket of snacks and goodies for our wonderful pilots to say thanks for their help. What a wonderful gesture!! Once Michele and Cheri landed in Westminster, Maryland (DMW) to meet David for the second leg, they all divvied up their snacks.

That's an awful lot of stuff for just one doggie...

David and Angel arrived at the Essex County Airport in Caldwell, New Jersey (CDW) to meet Anja, a wonderful Eleventh Hour volunteer. From there, Angel spent the night at Anja’s house before going to her wonderful foster home and rested peacefully after her day of first class flying.

Thank you so much Michele and David for your very quick assistance to help Angel. At a moment’s notice, you both very wonderfully volunteered to help. We are always so appreciative of your readiness and willingness to help us, each and every time. Angel certainly thanks you!!!

Thank you to the pilots, volunteers, Petmate, and Subaru.

    This was such a very special flight and I can’t thank Michele and David enough for stepping up so quickly. Pilots N Paws is such a wonderful cause and so many homeless pets’ lives have been saved because of the dedication and kindness of our Angels with wings, our Pilots N Paws pilots. Thank you again. Everything you all are doing is making an incredible difference! Take care, Leslie
