Flying our 24,000 passengers!

Last week we were wheels up with two very special passengers! Thanks to a wonderful team in El Paso, Texas and Portland, OR, we flew rescue animals number 24,000 and 24,001, because let’s get real, it’s hard just to choose one adorable rescue to celebrate!

New Plane, New Pilots, and New Partners to counter the Animal Shelter Crisis

The Sequel is already allowing us to rescue even more animals amidst an ever dire shelter crisis across our nation. According to Best […]

The Sequel Flying into Action

May has been an incredible month.

Celebrating a Lifesaving Year

As 2021 comes to a close, we are thankful for you! Our success over the last year would not be possible without the support of our loving community which has helped us save the lives of 21,000 dogs and cats from the southern tip of Texas, to the northernmost reaches of Washington State, Idaho and […]

Our partners and volunteers are the glue that makes our mission possible and we’re humbled to have their constant support. From the logistics of flying throughout the West to the physical moving of crates on the tarmac, our volunteers and partners are the ones on the ground who get thousands of rescued animals into forever […]
