2 dogs found themselves in need of a place to go as the Humane Society Of Catawba Cnty is about to undergo some much needed repairs to their shelter. Despite all efforts to keep animals calm in a shelter environment it can be stressful. Add to that the noise that construction can make and the situation can be unbearable for our four legged buddies. Landpilot Captain Lisa Thomas and first timer Carolyn Jochymek set out on Friday afternoon for Hickory NC on this lifesaving mission. After a good night’s sleep at a local hotel they loaded up their precious cargo and started the journey to our good friends at the Adams County SPCA where these pups will get a chance to find a home to call their own. Thanks to everyone involved, we love our rescue partners and we LOVE our volunteers! Congratulations to Carolyn on her first rescue mission!

We would like to dedicate this mission in honor of our sponsors for this year’s Dog Days of Summer 2018 presented by VCA Animal Hospitals event, without their generosity we would not be able to fulfill our mission: No Animal Left Behind.
