Thanks to a group of caring animal lovers in Brockport, hundreds of dogs rescued from high-kill shelters in North and South Carolina have found loving homes and happy lives in this area.

Lori Mufford (holding Samuel John, a 16 week old rescue who was flown in mid-April and is owned by Mackie LoMonaco), John Greco (Pilots N Paws pilot) and Randy Spurr of Spurr Subaru were on hand to greet the new puppy arrivals.

“Hundreds of dogs are put to sleep each week in these shelters, only because they are homeless,” says Laurie LoMonaco, Media Manager and foster mom with Duffy’s Friends, Inc., a rescue group based in Brockport.

“We have contacts in the shelter areas who pull dogs for us and house them until they have transport to Rochester,” LoMonaco says.

On Saturday, June 16, two puppies (from the same litter) were flown into Ledgedale Airpark by John Greco, a Pittsburgh businessman who often flies the dogs at his own expense through the Pilots N Paws group from Goldsboro, North Carolina to Rochester or Brockport.

Subaru is the largest corporate sponsor of Pilots N Paws, LoMonaco says, so she invited Spurr Subaru to be part of the welcome committee at Ledgedale.
