Ryan Lands in Missouri

Share This Story!

Ryan is a Lab/Rottie/GSD mix who was rescued from a Georgia Animal Shelter. After weather delays, he finally landed in Columbia, MO with the help of some special pilots willing to hit the road as well as take to the air.

Ryan was rescued by Faye Pugh of Pugh Rescue Columbia, MO. The first pilot Don Hull of Decatur, AL had to drive to the GA border to pick up Ryan, the weather was just too bad to fly, and then drive back to Decatur. The weather had improved enough, so Don flew Ryan to Covington, TN. Jim Carney picked up the baton there and flew Ryan to Columbia, MO.

Ryan was just a laid back dog and slept most of the way.

Thank you Subaru and Petmate. I may not have found a safe place without your help.
