Those of us who participate in aviation at any level recognize that pilots are among the most generous folks around. Whether it is transporting World War II veterans to Washington, DC to see the WWII Memorial, or carrying critically sick patients to hospitals far away, pilots are always willing to help. This love of flying combined with a strong desire to serve is the backbone of yet another unique aviation program, "Pilots N Paws". Pilots across the country have volunteered to help save puppies from the "canine death row". Just this past Sunday Hallmark aired a special called "A Dog Named Christmas" which highlighted the task of finding homes for some many abandoned or lost dogs. One such example of this volunteerism was documented on July 7th of this year in an article in the Gainesville Times. The article documented the path 18 puppies took to North Haven, CT where they were fostered until the "Shelter Dogs Rock" even took place. Several of these animals which were available for adoption were featured on the Connecticut SPCA web site located at www.spcact.org. If you are interested in participating in this program you can go to the Pilots N Paws website for more information. Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
