God bless pilots and paws - may the pilots who donate their time and planes have a very blessed and happy life. may the pups who are the travelers have the same!

Pilots N Paws is a wonderful organization. I'm a volunteer driver and have only transported 1 dog to a pilot but it was a great experience. I waited until the plane took off and it was fun to watch it leave.

My hat is off to the pilots who volunteer their time, plane, and gas to help the animals. I know that it's a very costly outing for them.

I am a volunteer driver for Pilots N Paws and that is a great bunch of people!! Sometimes we have a pilot coming in, but still need a driver or two to take the dogs or cats to their next pickup spot! So, if anyone s interested in helping, we could always use more pilots and drivers!

Seriously, these guys should live forever. They are truly good people. They do this out of the goodness of their hearts and generosity of their souls. All people should be this wonderful.
