Every day perfectly adoptable, healthy and friendly pets are being euthanized in America’s shelters whether it’s due to overcrowding or natural disasters including hurricanes, tornadoes and fires.
Too many pets and not enough homes is always the excuse. Wings of Rescue is working around the clock to change this mindset by flying thousands of pets from overcrowded, high intake shelters – where bad things are liable to happen – to shelters with empty kennel space and adopters waiting. No pet transported on a Wings of Rescue flight can be euthanized nor can any local shelter pet be euthanized to make room for a pet transported by Wings of Rescue.
Since we started keeping records in 2013, Wings of Rescue has flown over 31,000 pets to safety. Wings of Rescue planes have touched down in 42 states, 3 Canadian provinces, as well as Puerto Rico and both the United States and British Virgin Islands.
Our work is funded completely from donations. We rely upon these donations and the incredible generosity of our volunteer pilots, and the fabulous no-kill shelters across North America to save shelter pets’ lives. With your help, the sky is truly the limit to how many we can save.
