DIMC decreases the number of animals killed in shelters and increases shelter adoption by flying groups of animals to areas where they are more adoptable. DIMC works with established nonprofit animal rescue organizations to coordinate flights. By flying animals out of areas where they are at risk of euthanasia due to overpopulation problems, not only do the animal passengers find a furever family, but DIMC creates more space in the shelters for animals who would have otherwise been euthanized.
