Pilots N Paws took shelter dogs from LA and Riverside Counties in California and flew them to the Pacific Northwest, where they can begin their new lives.
Riverside County Animal Services participated in a large-scale shelter pets transport out of Long Beach Airport on Saturday, April 27, 2013. Pilots N Paws, a nonprofit, charitable organization, coordinated the event. Dogs from Los Angeles County and Riverside County benefited by being flown by volunteer pilots to northern destinations. Many of the pets were transferred in Fresno and then headed to shelter and rescue organizations in the Pacific Northwest.
