PNP Pilot Dr. Clinkscales Flew A Dog Named Barron For His First PNP Mission!

Share This Story!
We have officially completed our VERY FIRST rescue flight. It was such a success.
Here is the story about the little guy we gave a ride.
This is Barron. He is a 5 month old ball of love and here is his story. We were contacted by a friend in Mississippi about a dog that needed to be rescued due to a medical / orthopedic issue with his leg. His owners couldn’t afford to get his leg fixed so they called the breeder and told them about his condition and they were willing to take him back, but only to be euthanize.
We are bulldog owners ourselves so we felt the need to help him. The problem was, he was in North Carolina, we were in Florida and his forever dad lived in Mississippi and we had to get him from North Carolina to Mississippi. His original owners surrendered him to Carolina Pet Pantry and that is where we came in to help.
We have family in South Carolina so we decided while we were there visiting we would pick Barron up and let him stay the night with us and make the 2 hour plane ride to our house in  Florida the following morning. We woke up and flew straight to Florida where we live to wait for his dad to pick him up. We only had the little guy for a few hours, but he made a big impact in our lives and broke a few hearts along the way.

    I also rescue dogs and many times only have contact with a dog for a few hours, but it’s true how much they can impact your lives in that short amount of time. Thank you for what you do. You pilots are my heroes!!! I hope you continue to fly more dogs to their forever homes!

    I’ve had my little girl for a few years now. I will never forget all of the pilots…especially Chuck who spent the night at his parents due to rain and Juliette slept with his mom. They finally arrived save and sound… Welcome to the place that we who are so lucky to have our pets will never forget our pilots who got them to us…Welcome to YOUR new home!!!

    Shame on the breeder. I understand the need to watch out for the breed, but this was a fixable dog. The people that bought him did not ask for their money back, what gives you the right to euthanize. Thank you PNP for what you do. Good luck little man

    Bless your hearts! PNP comes into our area (Wilson, N.C.) often. It’s a wonderful feeling to take these special dogs/cats out to the airport but always sad to see them go!

    Thank you Dr. Clinkscales! It’s so nice to know there are people out there that care so much. Hopefully Barron will lead a long, healthy and happy life thanks to you and his new dad!

    Thank you for flying… for those of us who can’t!

    PAWSOME!!! What a LIL cutie!!!! Thank you Pilots and Paws for all you do to help the animals!! You flew my Booburke to me from Rome GA to Sanford FL Thank you Ed!!! All of you ROCK!!!

  14. Dr….I love a pilot that thinks to put headphones on the dog. I hope they stayed on! I don’t know how so many dogs can fall asleep as the plane engines are noisy!
    Good job!!

    I love your bulldog, too!
