After some discussions with Pilots N Paws Canada's Board of Director members and a chat with my friend Debi Boies Co-Founder of Pilots N Paws in the US here, I have made a decision to change or broaden our Pilots N Paws Canada program mandate.
As many of the larger animal rescue groups such as NOLA and NBRAN operate within both Canada and the US, we will now look for ways to assist these groups moving animals into fosters or adopting homes to and from the US if they are already established with Pilots N Paws in the US. Of course this will all be dependent on the volunteer pilots willingness to take on the flights.
We will still maintain our position of not assisting those who bring animals into Canada for profit or from any countries outside of Canada and the USA. Nor will our program be available to rescues that do not follow standard rescue protocols.
If a rescue cannot produce the necessary documentation to clear their animal into our country (see standard rescue protocols) they will not be flown by Pilots N Paws Canada. Pilots N Paws in the US has similar standards so if a group is flying with them on a regular basis, we are pretty sure they will be more than all right with us too.
