22 Furfaces Arrive in PA

Share This Story!

Scott Messinger took off on another mission for Columbus County Animal Control in Whiteville, NC. Dogs went to THE SANCTUARY, who then distributed them to multiple area Rescues. Today’s standouts were:

a mom and her 10 day old pups still unable to open their eyes


a SAD eyed, very DROOLY (love it) HOUND dog, of course


a bully mix who looks like spuds the budweiser dog,


and assorted heinz 57’s.


Great weather all the way down and back. Very hot for the pups so they stayed at 7,000 to keep the plane nice and cool. It was a good day.

    I am reading a book about the Pilots N Paw’s Organization, titled, DOG IS MY COPILOT. I am fascinated and so happy to hear of all the wonderful volunteers who are helping these beautiful and innocent dogs in need of a loving home. I saw on your website that there was recently a rescue from a shelter in Columbus County Animal Control in Whiteville, NC. It particularly got my attention because my daughter and I visited a shelter in Whiteville, NC just a couple of years ago and she adopted 2 dogs—brothers. They were puppies, and in such bad shape. They told us that the dogs and other animals there get absolutely no veterinary attention there and it was easy to see that the care was so poor, with dirty crates or cages that they just hosed out with the dogs in them. The 2 dogs she adopted were and continue to get fabulous care from my daughter and myself whenever she needs my help. They are 2 lucky guys. When she first took them to the vet right after she rescued them, the vet said he had never seen a worse case of worms—their tummys were distended. They had horrible fleas and ticks, and were in dire need of medical care and attention. They have since had surgery on their knees –each one had a surgery and are doing great. It warms my heart that they were given a chance. I can’t help but wonder how that shelter is now operating. I believe it is a kill shelter. Is there any information that you can give me regarding this shelter so that I may be of help i the future—any suggestions, etc. Thank you for all you do. I lost my Westie almost 2 yrs. ago. Casey was almosts 15 yrs. and I was fortunate to have been able to always give him the best of care, but unfortunately, his health finally gave out and he is now in Heaven. My heart goes out to these beautiful creatures—they depend on us and deserve all the help we can give them. I am trying to decide how I can become involved in some way so that I can help. Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Stella G. Keddie
