Pilots team up with Martin County rescue to save dogs slated for death
Taking some quiet time from the activity around the airplane, Nicholas Ross, 11, sits with, Breezy. Ross came to Witham Field in Stuart on Saturday with his parents, Brian and Pia Ross, all of Stuart, to pickup the dog that they will foster, and if all goes well, adopt. “We have a cat at home so if they get along, I get to keep him,” Nicholas Ross said. Breezy is one of 7 dogs scheduled to be euthanized Friday, but were instead rescued by NALA’s New Life Rescue, of Palm City, and flown to foster families in Fort Myers and Stuart on Saturday from a high-kill shelter in Chipley, FL. For information about adoption or foster, please call (772) 485-3799 or go to the website www.nalasrescue.org.
There are five rescue dogs with a new lease on life thanks to a collaboration between Nala’s New Life Rescue in Palm City and the national organization Pilots N Paws.
