Each year, the volunteers of Pilots N Paws save thousands of lives. Those lives come in the form of any animal that can be transported using a plane. Dogs, cats, pigs, reptiles and rabbits are just a few who have taken one of their flights.

Dianna Stanger and Mike Solomon began a recent Pilots N Paws flight from Calhoun County Airport with a mission to north Texas to transport two dogs.
