Are you a 501c3: Receiving
Additional Info/situation:

Pup (being fostered in New Iberia) and cats/kittens from Thibodaux shelter and owner in Napoleonville need ride to Houston to above-named rescues. Proposed trip is for pup to board at New Iberia (ARA), then fly to Patterson (PTN) where volunteer will meet plane with cats and kittens. Next stop would be Pearland, TX (LVJ), where Houston transporter will receive all animals and take to appropriate rescues. Weather might be a factor this weekend; if so, will cancel and reschedule for next week/weekend.

New Iberia foster will furnish crates for cats/kittens. Pilot will only need medium crate for pup.

At last, Mother Nature let us complete our trip. Pup was held back for another week at request of Brazoria Co. Humane, but 3 kittens and 3 adult cats made the trip from Patterson to Pearland today. And, this was a special trip indeed!! We welcome NEW PilotsnPaws pilot Don Ducote, who flew our kitties today on his maiden PnP flight! And, this trip was made possible by the generosity of Mr. Raja Gharazeddine, owner of and flight instructor for Acadiana Aviation. Mr. Raj not only furnished the airplane for the trip (a Piper Warrior) but he also picked up the fuel costs. What a marvelous gesture for our homeless felines! We can't say "thank you" enough.

When is this trip planning to go, Carolyn? My BFR is now current, and weather permitting, I may be able to help if it's this weekend.

CB
My range is about a 250 mile radius around Houston, Texas. Roughly that would include any field within an arc from Houma, LA (KHUM) to Monroe, LA (KMLU) to Paris, TX (KPRX) to Brady, TX (KBBD) to Carrizo Springs, TX (KCZT) to Brownsville, TX (KBRO).

Sorry, didn't see your post until just now. Leonard had to cancel this one yesterday (3/30) due to big weather signet between Houston and Beaumont. And, we were supposed to get drowned today here in S. Louisiana, but so far nothing has happened.

Guess we'll regroup for this coming week or weekend. Thanks and glad you're current again.

The weather is on its way, Carolyn!

(I'm working this coming weekend, so unavailable to fly)
