Seven precious lab puppies made their way from humid weather in Springhill, LA to the brrr-cold of Brooklyn Center, MN. The sending rescue was Furbaby Second Chance Rescue in Springhill, LA, operated by Judy Teague and Liz Harkins. No Dog Left Behind in Brooklyn Center took in the pups.

After many weeks of delays due to the weather, this rescue finally got in the air. Mother Nature finally heard everyones concern about getting the Puppies to MN because the weather could not have been any better. In pilot talk, it was a “non-event”.

    I was one of the people who said goodbye to the Pups from Springhill with my friends Judy and Liz. I had the honor of meeting PNP Pilot Jim Carney. What an awesome man, and an awesome organization. From me and all the Animal Rescuers, God Bless You All. And Thank You.

    Amazing stories of hope. We lost our lab at Christmas and it broke our hearts. We would love to have another lab. Any left?
