Additional Info/situation: Please meet Rupert! He was supposed to fly to a rescue group in Chicago during our PNP Dog is My Copilot flyway but due to weather, the second pilot could not make it in. That left us with one plane that managed to get 22 animals on board but sadly, there was no room left for Rupert. Rupert literally stole everyone's heart at the flyway and we were sad that he was not able to make his connection. However, he was showing some stiffness behind so his foster Mom wanted to have him checked out. She did and he is fine, he was just sore from being cramped in a crate on the way to the airport. Meanwhile, one of our board members found the perfect adoptive family for Rupert! We had two very kind pilots who said " no problem, we will fly him next weekend" but that is when the cold front hit and squelched those plans. There is also a conflict with work schedules between the two pilots so we decided to reach out and see if any other pilots would be available to work together to get this senior boy his new home? We hope so. Please send us an email if you can help us out, we don't want any dog left behind from our Flyway!
