PILOTS N PAWS DEDICATED TO HELPING ALL CREATURES, GREAT AND SMALL
Do you recall the verse, “All things wise and wonderful, all creatures great and small, all things bright and beautiful, the Lord God made them all?”
Perhaps it was this thought back in 2008 that motivated Debi Boies of Landrum, and pilot Jon Wehrenberg to start the non-profit Pilots N Paws organization. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, they thought, if needy animals could be flown to people and destinations where they would be loved and cared for?
Could they mobilize people, pilots, planes to transport “all creatures great and small” to the right places for love and healing?
Today, Pilots N Paws has recruited more than 3,400 pilots, according to executive director Kathleen Quinn. There are nearly 13,000 registered users on their site and more than 60,000 Facebook fans following their activities. Pilots N Paws have volunteers in all 50 states and “creatures great and small,” their rescue animals, number 12,000 in one year.
