Our Rescue Blog

The PAART team is passionate about saving animals. Whether it be by land or by air the team is on constant standby, ready to mobilize at a moments notice. Over the last few years our missions have varied in both size and scope. Every mission has unique circumstances and challenges. From large land rescues, to spur of the moment air missions, to humanitarian missions, the team is ready and willing to go to any lengths to leave No Dog Left Behind.

This rescue log features stories and pictures from some of our missions. Please take a look and feel free to share the posts. Bringing awareness to the plight of these animals is a part of our mission. With enough awareness on the issues facing shelters, rescues, and animals in general, we hope to put an end to needless suffering.
