October 1, 2010Barkworthy: Pilots N Paws

Our Barkworthy series spotlights organizations, events, and individuals who help make the world a better place for dogs and their people.

While the Bill and Melinda Gateses of the world do amazing things with their wealth and influence, sometimes the heroes who impress me most are those who help others just by dedicating their everyday talents and skills to help make a difference. Pilots N Paws is an awesome organization made up of just such people — pilots and private plane owners who donate their time, skills, and equipment to help transport adoptable animals to loving foster and forever homes.

Based in South Carolina, Pilots N Paws assists with animal transports all over the country. Recently, on September 18th, Pilots N Paws joined with Subaru of America for the Gulf Coast Rescue Flyway — which, in one day, helped save 171 dogs from euthanasia by transporting them to safe harbors throughout the country. Awesome!

You can read more about the recent Gulf Coast rescue and Pilots N Paws other barkworthy work on their web site.

    I agree with you about the heroes that are the most impressive – people like this! I’ve always wanted to see an airline that was pet friendly – one where you could actually take your pets with you so that they wouldn’t be put in the cargo area – a horrible place to be. Maybe one day someone will come along and start a pet airline. In the mean time, Pilots and Paws is doing great work and they are to be admired.
