Seven Crates in a Piper

Share This Story!

So many to Thank! On Fathers Day 6-16-2013 , 3 Pilots N Paws Pilots (John, Colin, Rodney) flew 7 dogs to safety! Three littles went to “Pound to Pillows”, and 4 littles went to “Muttville”!


The flight began in Riverside with 3 littles from Ramona shelter in San Jacinto, CA. All 3 littles were euth listed. Then we flew to Bakersfield to meet Lorin (thanks again Lorin for meeting us with frozen little water bottles to put in each crate to keep everyone¬†cool) and 4 littles from Kern County Shelter (also euth listed). We flew to Paso Robles and met Karen (Pound to Pillows Rescue) and handed over the 3 littles from Ramona…then handed over the 4 littles from Kern to pilot Rodney.

Thanks to so many!!!!! We all know what it takes to make these flights work. Lots of e-mails, and lots of patience.

Of course special thanks to 3 pilots for flying on father’s day to make this happen and Two Awesome Rescues “Pound to Pillows ” – Karen in Paso Robles and Muttville- Sherri Franklin , San Francisco

Thanks Again Everyone!

P.S. “YES” you can fit 7 crates into a Piper…thanks pilot John, for taking out a seat for the flight so the crates would fit.
