Those who put their life on the line to help others always have a special place in our hearts. The story of The Upper St Clair Volunteer Fire Department firefighter Lilly Caudill was one of those stories that had special meaning for PAART. Lilly lost her dog and fell in love with an animals one of our rescues a few weeks ago. She reached out to one of our co-founders and pilots Brad Childs, himself a fellow member of the Upper St Clair Fire department, and the a special rescue was born. From rescuing people, to rescuing this adorable puppy, Lilly is truly a hero to both her two and four legged friends.

PAART Pilots Brad Childs and Tom McFadden flew, along with Lilly and her Grandmother, to Mifflin, PA to rescue this adorable little girl. Originally from a Land Rescue we did in Mississippi, the pup now has had the unique privilege of being on both a land and air rescue. Welcome back to Pittsburgh little girl! We are happy to have completed your story.
