I don't know if this is the correct forum or not, but a wonderful thing has happened for me and my friends!

As a Transport Coordinator, I work day in and day out with volunteer pilots that help me get shelter dogs to rescues, and foster dogs to their new homes. I am blessed to know the pilots that generously donate their time, their planes and their fuel. Through PilotsNPaws, countless animals have been saved

While this book has not been released yet, I am so proud of it, that I had to 'share' it with all of you here!

http://www.amazon.com/Dog-My-Copilot-Rescue-Chances/dp/1449407609/ref=pd_ybh_1?pf_rd_p=280800601&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1501&pf_rd_i=ybh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0K2HH69R6JEE86X1G8ZB

One of the transports that is highlighted is from Sioux Falls to Texas.. the Humane Society seized 154 dogs (47 of which were German Shorthaired Pointers) because of the dedication of the pilots 38 GSP's went flying on to new lives in all four corners of the lower 48 as well as Canada. (the rest were on ground transport)

I could not be more proud of my pilot friends (that have helped me alone fly over 200 dogs) and the hard work that they do transporting these animals on to a better life.

This is the particular transport that is to be highlighted as one of the stories in the book.

Thank you all for looking and thank you for spreading the word on this potential best seller!!

I couldn't be more proud of these guys and the animals that they help! Right now we are working to bring a dog in from Kansas to New Jersey.. one of my pilots is even keeping this dog overnight for the weekend (because the weather is going to ground us midway)

Truly a gift.

I am blessed to know these people.

What an absolutely great organization.  I've got the book on my PBS WL and have also made a donation to Pilots N Paws.  Thanks for bringing this organization to our attention.  yes
