Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team is off again! The ground team had suited up and transported dogs from Kentucky to Pennsylvania and New York. Due to food shortage at the Morgan County shelter, the team also loaded up with donations from Cross Your Paws to restock the shelter with food supplies! Let’s take a look at the breakdown for this recent Rescue Mission:

Rescue Mission Code Name: Kilo Yankee 4.7.19

Transit Mode: Ground / Landplane

Location: Kentucky

Rescue Animals: Dogs

Number of Animals: 13

PAART Mission Background:

All 13 of these dogs in Kentucky were on the list to be euthanized but not if PAART has a say in it. The team was assembled and are ready to deploy. We took the landplane on a nearly 800-mile roundtrip to Morgan County Animal Shelter to pick up dogs from there and surrounding shelters to relocate back to Pennsylvania to give these animals a chance at a future life.
