The Anti-Cruelty Society (ACS) in Chicago got in on the action yesterday! They agreed to pick up several dogs, 17 in fact, that were coming in from North Carolina. They will be busy this week prepping their new furry pals for photos and getting them prepared to find their new forever home. Just think, two different rescues in the Chicagoland area involved with Pilots-N-Paws (PNP). There were over 300 dogs rescued by Pilots-N-Paws yesterday with the help from many rescues around the U.S. and Canada.
PNP had set a goal of attempting to save 200 dogs this weekend. They soared right by that goal and landed over 100 more animals than anticipated. This was indeed the largest animal rescue by air in the history of animal rescue!
Due to inclement weather yesterday, one of the “Dog Is My Copilot” flights was unable to complete their mission. The last dog will arrive at its destination this afternoon.
Sam Taylor, one of the many Pilots-N-Paws pilots was grounded in Kansas City at their Downtown Airport otherwise known as KMKC because of poor weather conditions; postponing but not cancelling the flight. Sam carried through when able though – just as soon as he possibly could!
