"Pilots ’N Paws, connects pilots to shelters with dogs that have not found homes. The pilots volunteer to fly them to other states, giving them a second chance at adoption."


"This site is intended to be a meeting place for those who rescue, shelter or foster animals, and pilots and plane owners willing to assist with the transportation of animals. It is not the intent of Pilots N Paws to coordinate or arrange those providing these valuable services, but to provide the environment in which those involved can come together in a common place and arrange or schedule rescue flights, overnight foster care or shelter and all other related activities.

"Through the discussion board those involved can exchange information about transports publicly so that they can set up an entire transport and share all information necessary to successfully accompish the goal, but also allow others to volunteer their efforts if they see help is needed to save animals.

"All participants are encouraged to check daily for various new listings on the discussion board for purposes of volunteering or assisting in an effort to save animals. The discussion board is also intended for participants to develop friendships and relationships and to get to know one another because we are all working for a common goal.

"The only request for those participating is to be aware of the concerns of others. For that reason there are links to general information that is specific to pilots or those involved in the sheltering or rescue. Aviation is a wonderful alternative to ground transports, but unlike ground transports those involved will have concerns not generally faced by ground transporters."

This is for shelters-rescues only; they can join PNP (free!) and make arrangements for animal transports.
