Misty’s Magic Carpet Ride

Share This Story!

May 21st, 2013 Todd started our 25th Pilots N Paws Rescue at (3M5) Moontown Airport in Huntsville, AL, our home base. I was not able to go on the rescue due to having a dog home sick from surgery. He took student pilot Adam Wallace on the rescue with him. Weather was good getting out of Moontown, so they headed to London, KY to pick up Misty a, 55 pound German Sheppard mix. Todd and Adam were meeting Alex Durham, who was flying Misty’s first leg from Buckhannon, WV to London, KY. After getting Misty loaded they headed back to Huntsville. Lisa Hall met them at Moontown airport to pickup Misty. Misty is going to a forever home in Huntsville.


It is always very emotional for these rescuers to let the dogs go, but they know the animals are headed for a better life.

All rescues are complex rescues, but they end up very successful. We appreciate how hard the volunteers work facilitating constantly changing dogs, destinations, times, pilots, and weather.

Unfortunately many others aren’t as lucky, and as you all know, the only answer to this devastating issue is to spay/neuter/rescue. All of these dogs are really sweet, and they deserve to be curled up on the living room floor at night not tossed out like trash.
