Even Winter Storm Ezekiel couldn’t stop our PAART Landplane from rescuing 30 dogs in need.

Landpilots Dave Stash and Walter Schwarz started the trip to Portsmouth, Ohio. However, the winter storm caused turnpike closures eastbound and we had to push back our mission a day. Dave and Walter stayed in Ohio to wait out the storm and started out early the next morning to meet our friends Sierra’s Haven for New and Used Pets and Paris Animal Welfare Society.

We loaded up the 30 dogs and our second team, Tim Bouvy and Melissa Andrae, took over and headed to Madison, New Jersey. The folks at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center took in the dogs and are giving them a fresh start at life!

This mission was in honor of “Bob the Dog” from Acorn Pittsburgh!  Bob had a piece of art that the Acorn Pittsburgh Restaurant auctioned off that brought in well over $500 for PAART!  Cydnie Oleinick also helped make this donation possible.

If you’re interested in any of these adorable pups, make sure to contact St. Huberts!
