Welcome to my Pilots N Paws Blog

Welcome to my Pilots N Paws Blog
PILOTS N PAWS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. PilotsNpaws.org provides an online meeting place for pilots and other volunteers to coordinate the transport of innocent animals (many of which are on death row to be euthanized) from shelters and foster homes to their new families. The members of Pilots N Paws donate their own aircraft, time and costs to give these animals a new chance at life.

If you or somebody you know is in need of priority transportation of their animals please visit the Pilots N Paws home page.

If you have questions concerning the Pilots N Paws organization please feel free to contact me.

Thank you for visiting and please check out the organizations at the bottom of the page.

The Pilots N Paws forums section is where all the rescue and transport coordinations are made. Individuals post their requests on the mission board for pilots to see. If a pilot is available for a certain mission they respond to the requester via the forum discussion post.

The Pilots N Paws forum also provides an area for pilots to exchange ideas and a place for rescue volunteers to plan and discuss logistics, routes, hand-offs and other pertinent information.

Take a look at the Success Stories to see what this organization is all about.
