A small group of dedicated volunteers and their foster dogs descended on a small airport in Timberlake, North Carolina last Saturday morning. The dogs, saved by Chances Angel Rescue & Education, Inc. (C.A.R.E.), were flown by Pilots N Paws volunteers up to Pennsylvania. There, they will meet their new families and go on to their forever homes.

Rhonda Beach started C.A.R.E., a 501(c)3 rescue organization, back in October 2010. With the goal of saving as many dogs as possible from Person County Animal Control’s (PCAC) gas chamber, Rhonda and Annette Rogers, C.A.R.E. Vice President, frequent PCAC to pull the adoptable dogs. These dogs are then placed in foster homes as far south as Durham and as far north as South Boston, Virginia, awaiting an approved adopter. Amazingly, that usually only takes about 2 to 5 weeks. But those weeks are crucial for the animals: they are not only vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and spayed or neutered, but they also receive the love and gentle human touch that is all too frequently absent from shelter animals’ lives today. When an approved adopter has been found, the dogs begin their journey north.
