My name is Tammy Woods from Whispering Woods Animal Rescue, based in N.E. Philadelphia, PA. I am a solo Non-profit rescue with just a few volunteers and foster homes. I also am a Sergeant in the Philadelphia, PA, Police Department. Being employed by them now for 25 years. After being seriously injured in the line of duty almost 2 years ago and losing 75% of the use in my right arm, I finally decided to persue my life long dream of animal rescue. After all medical attempts and surgery have proved unsuccessful, I will more than likely not be returning to work. Therefore my rescue is now full time.

Although my organization is just 8 months old and small, I have pulled dogs from many different states around the country: PA,NY,NJ,OH, MD,NC,GA,TN, with SC being the largest % of my rescues. I also have been lucky enough to obtain fosters in each of these states. I pull an eclectic group of dogs in breed, age, health, & personality. I also pull mommas & new born puppies & pregnant mommas.

I do not move dogs in & out of my rescue quickly as I try my best to use the skills that I have acquired to not just rescue, but also rehabilitate the rescue animals prior to adopting them out. A few of my fosters also assist me with this process. We want our animals to be placed & remain forever in their new loving homes. My disability has not stopped me from training the animals, nor renting vans to travel to these areas to transport my rescues back up North. I currently have 25 dogs & one cat in my rescue. Funds, both donated & personnal, are now gone, therefore, I can not make the transports I was doing up until just last week from the South. This urged me to seek out Pilots & Paws, for hopefull assistance.

Additionally, besides my own rescuing, I also was helping other rescues with transports, home visits, shelter pulls, etc. In addition to hoping that this organization can help me with future transports, I am also offering my time to assist in any way possible. I am not sure if it is permissible for me (not being a professional flight attendant) to assist in flight with transporting the animals, but if it is, then I would be more than happy to help in that capacity. I can be contaced at:

Thanks for the opportunity and look forward to many happy adventures!!

I am Tammy. I am in Greenwood, SC. I am actually from the Humane Society of Greenwood S.C. and I am the Asst Shelter Manager / Rescue Coordinator. I am looking for many ways to save the animals that I care for everyday, I am always looking for people to help with transport as that is the biggest issue in moving the animals, so if anyone can help in anyway please feel free to contact me. We have lots of animals to save, and I plan on getting as many out to safety as I can. :) Thanks everyone!

My name is Raven. I came to PnP a year ago on the suggestion of someone I had done rescue work with (I am involved in high risk rescues) when my own dog almost became a statistic - thanks to a fabulous pilot Tink lived and is still happy in her new home and life is good. After that I got out of dog rescue as it broke my heart one too many times - we pull/foster and find homes for those dogs that are basically on the death list in high kill shelters and have not long to live. It does pull at you. Anyways one of the dogs I posted about today is the reason I got back into it - something in his eyes said Help Me Take Me Home & then come back for more. So after a years hiatus I am jumping back in . . . .

I have been following this wonderful group but only recently registered. I work in cocker spaniel rescue and specifically work with Charlotte Cocker Spaniel Rescue in North Carolina. I am working on a specific challenge as I write and was looking for tips and recommendations from this site that may help me with this challenge.
