PNP Pilot Tripp Costas Flies Reegan from Denver to Nashville!

Share This Story!
reegan1Melissa, a volunteer for German Shepherd Rescue and Adoption received an urgent call that Reegan, a dog she had known for years was dumped in a high-kill shelter in Denver Colorado. Reegan had very little chance to make it out alive unless we could quickly figure a way to safely get her to North Carolina. Melissa was the only person Reegan had now and she had do everything in her power to save her. 
The thought of transporting her from Colorado to North Carolina seemed like an insurmountable task but then we thought of Pilots N Paws…it was worth a shot. Melissa put in a plea to PNP and within hours she got a reply from Tripp Costas, a wonderful man who said he’d be happy to take Reegan from reegan2Denver to Nashville! After some pictures and hugs, Reegan was eager to get on the plane and head east with Tripp! She sat right next to him just like a co-pilot and knew she was safe. On behalf of GSRA we want to thank PNP and specifically Tripp Costas for helping to save her life. We are deeply grateful.
