‘CBS This Morning’ Highlights El Paso Shelter Dogs’ Journey Home

“CBS This Morning” had an animal rescue segment on their Sunday show that featured some local shelter dogs on their journey to their forever homes. If you caught the latest episode of “CBS This Morning” on Sunday, you may have noticed a familiar animal shelter being highlighted during the show. The show did a feature on one rescue dog’s journey from the Sun City to his forever home in Oregon.


Hi I’m Brookie, a sweet two year old female Husky! I am currently looking for a foster home, particularly one that is accepting of the fact that I have just a few special requirements. I was recently diagnosed with heartworm disease upon my arrival at Mountain Humane and will need to be on medicine for a little while. I will sometimes need to come in for my injections and check-ups just to be sure I am making progress in getting better. During my treatment, I will also need a mellow, low exercise home so I can bounce back even faster. If you think I would be a good fit, give my friends at Mountain Humane a call at (208)-788-4351 for more info!


Faithful Forest will make you howl for joy! Not only is he the most fun-loving kind of company to have, but he’s also a big softy at heart. Don’t be fooled by the hound personality or energetic qualities, he has a whole lot more to offer- including being your BFF (best furry friend). Forest’s ideal home would be one that he can keep up with during all the entertaining activities (or naps too), and one that is excited to keep the momentum going in the training realm for him as well! Forest is ready to be a member of your pack! So what’d you say? Give us a call at (208)-788-4351 to schedule an appointment!

14,000 Rescued Animals and Counting

It is hard to believe that in 8 short years, Dog Is My CoPilot has saved the lives of 14,000 animals. We have reached this amazing milestone by flying at risk animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other states where loving families are waiting to adopt the pets.

This boy is quite a character! We lovingly call him the Meatball. He is happy and goofy and chubby and just a good boy. He is medium to high energy and loves to play.
He is jumpy in his kennel and will bark at dogs passing by, but we’ve learned that is just his excitement to get out and meet them. Pizza was our helper dog in the yard for hours. He was happy and social, and would try and get even the toughest dog to play. He’d pull out all the moves.

He was social and friendly with both male and female dogs, adjusted his energy level and play to fit his play buddy at the time. Pizza is starting his training under our prison program (8/21/20) to work on his basic commands and leash manners, he does really well in his crate.

Pizza will be an amazing addition to your family!


As soon as we met Video we knew he was something special and we just had to take him with us! Video is a good looking goofball who likes other dogs and is very active! He is currently training in Mule Creek in Northern California in our prison program and he is ready for his forever home.

Video is looking for a home with an experienced handler and with no young kids.

Adopt Video!
