Lilly gets to see the world just like the song says!

From Pilot Dr. David Crouch:

“This is the story of another successful Pilots N Paws rescue flight.

Lilly is a white boxer mix from Rome, GA, who had a litter of puppies, but sadly they all died. She was quite sick and heartworm positive. She successfully recovered from the heartworm treatment, and is now a 50-lb healthy, sweet adult who has found her “furever” home thanks to Dorothy Peters of Carolina Boxer Rescue (Graham, NC).

With the help of another pilot, Mr. Bob Hite, Lilly arrived at the Asheville airport on the morning of June 16, 2011. Dr. David Crouch and his son Mark flew Lilly to Burlington, NC. They were greeted by Dorothy Peters and Doug Allison who will be her foster parents.

    I just watched the video of Dr. David Crouch, and his son, Mark, take Lilly on the first leg of her rescue journey and it is a real “feel good” story. People like this, who volunteer their time to help animals in need, bolster my faith in humanity. Stories like Lilly’s also remind us of the value of each and every dog, and how we need to help those who can’t help themselves.

    Thank you for starting Lilly on her new life, Dr. Crouch, Mark, Bob Lite and her foster parents! And, thank you for making my day!

    I just want to say thank you for helping get Lilly to me. She’s doing great. She’s gaining weight and her fur is healthy and has stopped falling out. She’s such a good girl.

  7. Mark says:

    How fantastic! And what a great opportunity for Mark to help out animals and get to fly at the same time. I’ve never heard of this, and it’s exciting to know that something like this exists. Thanks to the pilots, co-pilots, and dog lovers for making this possible.
