On this flight we had a chance to transport a couple of the cutest Beagle pups you’ve ever seen. The smaller one, tater Tot, was so full of energy and love. Ann from the local rescue certainly shed more than one tear when they left.

Boscoe is a 2-year-old, 30 lbs. Beagle, who was found in a shelter in Whitesville, North Carolina. We’re not sure how he got there. But it’s a miracle he’s still alive. Boscoe had heartworms so bad they weren’t sure he would survive the treatment. (more…)

Mission – Helping a Military Family

This mission was an emotionally tough one. But a big hat tip goes out to our patrons for helping to support us to save Tonto and Ranger.

Tonoto, a female, black labrador retriever and Ranger, a male, golden labrador retriever, belong to a couple that serves on active duty in the US Air Force.

Due to ongoing, overlapping deployments they are no longer able to keep the dogs they rescued as puppies.

Over the past several years they’ve had friends keep the dogs but they don’t see their traveling slowing down anytime soon and can’t keep imposing on friends generosity

Both dogs are 5yrs old and at their age, as owner surrenders, Tonto especially because people have a misconception that black dogs are evil, and Ranger don’t have a very good chance of making it out alive of a kill shelter. North Carolina has one of the highest number of kill shelters in the county.

Steph Tjosvold, of Midwest Animal Rescue & Services in St. Paul, Minnesota agreed to bring the dogs into the rescue but needed help getting them from Raleigh, NC to Minnesota.

Steph posted a request asking for help getting the dogs to Pennsylvania by Sept. 23rd where she had already retained a pilot to fly them from PA to Wisconsin.

From Wisconsin she had a flight set to bring them into MN. Where she had forever homes already for them each.

She asked, to please help her honor their service to our country by saving their beloved dogs.

How could we refuse!!
