From amazing Pilot Jeff Bennett:
I started at 6am as I met up with Michelle from the Key West Wildlife Center who had two Falcons (American Kestrels) that needed a ride north.
Feathered Passenger, Mr. Falcon
Second Falcon letting someone else be his wings!
I departed the Marathon airport at 7am enroute to Thomasville, GA where I picked up three cute dogs.
One of three pups flying with the Falcons!
"You Birds aren't the only ones who can fly!"
I'm ready to fly, Jeff !
Then it was a quick trip over to Marianna where I dropped off the two Falcons that were going to a local sanctuary and picked up two more dogs.
Soon to be Mama Dog
Sweetie pup !
My next stop was to be Sanford, FL but low ceilings caused me to land at Orlando Executive airport. The rescue took it in stride and came to pick up her two dogs, (one very pregnant one) and the other very playful. Then it was back across the state to Tampa to deliver the last three dogs before heading back home.
Other than the weather on the east side of Florida, it was a beautiful day to be in the air and 7 more critters on their way to better lives. Thanks to all the rescues and fosters for making it happen.
