Leslie in Wilmington, NC shares an incredible story of true compassion and team work!

Three little basset girls/sisters, Bama, Georgia and Julep had a rough life in just their 1 & 1/2 years, located in Panama City FL. Since they were little puppies, all they had known was one another, living life in an outdoor kennel with only one worn doghouse to call home. Their only human interaction was when food was thrown into their kennels. The owner put them up for sale, to be bred, and a good Samaritan convinced the owner to sell them all to her.


She immediately contacted basset rescues all around the country for help and ABC Basset Rescue of NY jumped in. It was a time sensitive issue and with the help of wonderful Pilots N Paws pilots, they are now safely with this wonderful rescue and have the hope of finding wonderful forever homes.


Pilot Jeremy Craven flew them from Panama City, FL (ECP) to Lagrange, Georgia (LGC) on Saturday, 9/28. Susan Pollack Delgado picked up the second leg, flying them from LGC to Hickory Regional Airport (HKY) in NC. We were able to get the help of a wonderful temp foster who picked them up, kept them overnight and delivered them to the airport for their next day of first class flying.


On Sunday (9/29), Christophe Masiero took the Day 2 Leg 1 from HKY to Harrisonburg, VA (SHD). Michele McGuire and Cheri Henke took Leg 2 from SHD to Westminster, MD (DMW). Madhavan Thirumlai and Sergei Levitan took Leg 3, the final leg from DMW to Oneonta, NY (N66) and now all girls are safe and sound with ABC Rescue of NY, a wonderful rescue group.


Events like this are awe inspiring to me. So many folks coming together, across so many states, taking the time out of their busy lives – all to help 3 little girls to safety. We are so grateful to all of the pilots for their help. The pilots are the true inspiration. Without their help, Bama, Georgia and Julep wouldn’t have the promise of great lives as they do now. My hope and my wish is that each pilot knows how much we truly appreciate their participation in Animal Rescue. They are our Angels with Wings!
