We were contacted by Kristen in Wilson, NC, whom we have worked with before and she had a rescue that was coming right out of a kill shelter and going to LaMancha Animal Rescue in Coatesville, PA. LaMancha is a wonderful rescue located on a rural farm in PA that started out rescuing horses and grew to rescue all types of animals. They are a wonderful caring group and any animal taken there will either find a wonderful family or become one of the farm family. Either way it’s a wonderful life. (more…)

Not long ago Pam did a ground transport for a dog named Gus. At the time, Pam noticed Iggy’s name on Gus’s Health Certificate. When she picked Gus up she heard another dog bark and thought that another dog may be with the same foster and got concerned. She called Gus’s foster, Linda and she put Pam in contact with the rescue that handled Gus. (more…)

Mission – Saving Two Dogs and Nine Puppies is the Mission of the Day

This flight and the saving of these dogs, who would have otherwise been killed for lack of shelter space, was made possible by our amazing supporters and patrons who help us out for as much or as little as they can afford. If you are not yet a supporter, click here to learn more.

Nancy a volunteer from Granville County SPARE (Shelter Partner for Adoption, Rescue & Education) and her two super cute daughters brought Danny, a Border Collie Mix, to meet us at Triangle North Executive Airport.

Danny is a happy and playful dog. He’d never met Nancy and her daughters until that morning and he was quickly rolling around and playing with them as if he’d known them forever.

Danny was at the Granville Animal Shelter in April of this year but his owners came and got him. In May, Danny was hit by a car and was found on the side of the road with a laceration on his leg. He was taken again to the shelter. This time his owners didn’t want him or couldn’t afford to treat him and told the shelter to euthanize him. That’s when Granville County SPARE came in and took Danny, they paid for the surgery on his and found a foster family that took care of him while he recuperated. We did not meet the foster family but they deserve massive hugs.

Amber was surrendered by her owner shortly after she gave birth to her pups. We are not sure exactly why but obviously the sudden explosion in dog family size was unmanageable by the previous owner. Amber was so thin and scared. She reminded us of the dogs you see on TV when the SPCA is looking for donations.
