CNN’s “Giving in Focus” please watch on Christmas Day!

Pilots N Paws is very grateful to have been chosen by CNN photojournalist Burke Buckhorn as one of the organizations to be highlighted on CNN’s “Giving in Focus” special to air on Christmas Day at 4:30 p.m. eastern time.  We hope you will all tune in to watch Bobo, Lucy and Miley meet their new families and the village it took to get them there!

Bobo and Lucy, best friends taking a stroll pre-boarding!


Miley, adorable in pink looking forward to meeting her new family!

Very special thank you to pilot Mike Young with co-pilot Kelly,  pilot Douglas Manuel with wife Tammy, to Rhonda Beach and volunteers with Chances Angel Rescue and Education,  Almost Home Dog Rescue and to the adoptive families who opened their hearts to a rescue dog.
