Pilots N Paws


Working with rescue groups across the country, pilots donate their time, their planes, and their fuel, to transport animals to places where they will be adopted.

These rescues happen because spay/neuter programs in some parts of our country are working – making room for the homeless from other areas. Pilots N Paws facilitates rescue transport – airlifting domestic pets – to new lives.

It’s the goal of Pilots N Paws to make transport available for all rescued animals that have homes waiting for them – no matter where those homes are. You can help make it happen. If you love animals – please sterilize your pet. If you rescue or shelter, consider joining our team, and if you’re a pilot please sign on to make one of the most rewarding flights of your life. If you can make a donation, 100% of your donation will go towards helping the animals.

Please join us and put an end to pet overpopulation in our lifetime. Together we do make a difference!

Pilots N Paws is an all-volunteer organization with the exception of our Executive Director.  Fundraising is critical to the success of our ability to assist rescuing thousands of animals each year. The gifts we receive go toward: pilot education through aviation events, planned elementary school education on responsible pet ownership, and community education on pet sterilization and proper care of animals.  It also goes toward transportable animal crates which includes shipment across the country to our pilots, insurance (which we are required to have) website management, brochures, and office supplies. In addition we are working with various states on disaster planning for evacuation of animals should the need arise.

Each year our volunteer pilots donate their fuel and their planes for rescues. We maintain a 501c3 charitable organization status which enables our pilots to claim part of their flight expenses as a donation at the end of the year. At the same time our all-volunteer teams on the ground pay for animal sterilization and transportation costs to the airports. Every one of our board of directors donates their time to our special cause.
