With time running out and animal lives at risk, Pilot Pete Lehmann took to the skies for a 500 mile round trip flight to bring 10 animals from danger to safety. Fresh off a seven-and-a-half hour journey the day before, Pete suited up and departed as the sun began to rise. A flight to North Carolina over the mountains meant added risk as the hot air pushed the clouds upward, making it difficult for him to navigate. Pushing through, Pete knew that getting these animals to a second chance was worth the risk.
Each one of these animals had the same problem in common. As they spent more and more time in a shelter, their odds of finding their furever home began to wane. We knew we had to get these dogs to Pittsburgh, where there is a desperate need for adoptable animals. Their day began with uncertainty but ended with a chance to become someone’s new best friend.
If you are looking for a new best friend, or know someone who is, please share this post so we can complete these animals’ journey from danger to safety!
