Good morning everyone,
Today is the anniversay of Pilots N Paws first official rescue flight! It is truly amazing to see how far we have come in such a short time. It is only through the efforts of ALL OF YOU who volunteer to save these animals that we continue to grow.....
It was early February last year when I first sent an email out to rescues, letting everyone know what my generous pilot friend Jon Wehrenberg and I had hoped to introduce. The rescue community responded in force. The Pilots soon learned about us and as they did, they chose helping the animals versus going for the $100.00 hamburger we are always hearing about! All of you helped us get to where we are today, and for that, we thank you!
Presently we have over 1400 registered users on our forum board. We have approximately 300 pilots across the country with more joining every week. The pilots volunteer without hesitation devoting their time, their resources and their planes to help innocent animals get to where they need to go for their chance at a loving home. Close to 300 animals , or more, have been flown to safety.
All of us in rescue have benefited from Pilots N Paws and the pilots always tell me that they are the ones who truly benefit by seeing these frightened animals change before them when they feel a kind hand. It touches the pilots hearts and for this reason alone, I hope that Pilots N Paws continues to thrive as a part of rescue, working hand in hand with all of you.
We look forward to continuing on this journey and doing our part in making a difference. Thanks to all of you for doing your part as well. Let's Party!!!
