Artie’s Flight to Oregon

Artie after Transport to Hillsboro

Recently, Lynn from a California SPCA made a post on the PNP forum describing Artie: a young,  lovable Malamute that needed to be flown from Salinas, CA to Hillsboro OR, a 12-hour, 700-mile drive that could be flown in a shorter time (and 100 fewer miles).

Thankfully, Erich, Matthew T., and another PNP pilot stepped up to take Artie to Oregon, where he could find a home that is as lovable as he is. After fostering Artie overnight with his family, Matthew flew him 250 miles from Salinas CA to Redding CA, where the other two pilots could take him the remaining distance. While fostered overnight, Matthew’s family showered Artie with lots of love before he went on his journey to Oregon (see pictures)!

PNP would like to thank Matthew and the other pilots who flew (as well as those who offered to fly) Artie, as now he is currently in foster and is being prepared for adoption in Oregon to find his forever home!

“This was a special rescue for us. My wife Amy grew up with two Malamutes and the opportunity to share this amazing breed with our family, even just for a night was amazing. Pilots N Paws has allowed us to combine our love of flying and service with our children! Thank you PNP!”

-Matthew T.
