PITTSBURGH AVIATION ANIMAL RESCUE TEAM
To save the lives of animals in danger while enriching the lives of people.
What We Do:
What began as one dog on an airplane several years ago has evolved into a team of over 100 volunteers who fly or drive animals from danger to safety free of charge to both the sender and receiver.
The idea was simple, an animal in one shelter that has run out of time can be transported to another shelter with the space and resources to spare their lives. This bridge between shelters simultaneously opens up space in the overcrowded shelter and gives shelters with open space animals to adopt out to the public.
Today thousands of animals every year are given a second chance to enrich the lives of the people who adopt them. Each and every one of these life saving transports is done with a team of volunteers who do this free of charge to the underfunded shelters who need us.
