Posted a reply here that is the same as our email to you. Covering all communication bases.
Our names are Ann-Janette and Dirk Vander Ende. We've listed AJ as our Pilots n Paws contact regarding email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and emergency contact phone so please try responding to that email and CC me here at email@example.com
. AJ is involved with the Dearborn County, IN, PAWS chapter (Partners for Animal Welfare Society of Dearborn County) and has been a volunteer with them for about six years. I am the licensed pilot (also an airline pilot and former US navy pilot) of our four seater Cherokee 160 private airplane and AJ flies with me as a non-pilot co-pilot (perhaps someday to change should she pursue her Private Pilot license). We'd like to get involved with PilotsnPaws and especially this drive to transport 5,000 needy animals.
Is your proposed cat transport to or from a registered 501C3 non-profit organization (for IRS purposes)? If so, would you be willing to give us a receipt for the animals stating we had conducted a charitable mission on behalf of your 501C3? We weren't sure from your post.
You've listed the 19th of September as a possible transport day. Would the cats be ready for transport on the 16th of September? That would be the best day for us as AJ would have to take a day off from work. The 17th is also a possible transport date.
Please reply to us no later than September 4th. If you do not need our assistance we will strive to find another rescue animal to assist on this day.
Dirk and AJ
