Flying Home for Good
Non-profit organizations Home for Good Dog Rescue and Pilots N Paws teamed up to give twenty-two puppies and dogs the flight of their lives. Home for Good Dog Rescue is a foster-based rescue in Summit, New Jersey. They first started working with Pilots N Paws, a group that connects volunteer pilots with animal rescues, in January. The groups have formed a relationship and continue to work together to save the lives of innocent animals.
On Thursday, May 16th, Home for Good had their 4th plane transport through Pilots N Paws. This transport was a little different than the others; many volunteer pilots coordinated to fly not one, but three planes from South Carolina to New Jersey. More planes equals more lives saved. The precious cargo landed at Morristown Airport around 4pm, with each plane landing about 15 minutes apart. The pups were helped off of the plane by volunteers then transported to Home for Good’s offices in Berkeley Heights where they were bathed, groomed and prepped to go into their local foster home.
Home for Good Dog Rescue is a 100% foster-based rescue; each dog that they save and bring back to New Jersey goes directly into a foster home in the local area. Home for Good has a network of about fifty dedicated foster families. These families play a huge role in saving the lives of these dogs. If you are interested in becoming a foster for Home for Good, fill out an application at www.HomeForGoodDogs.org. “Your home is the best shelter a dog can have”…that is their motto. Once the pups travel from the kill shelters in the South up North, they will never again be put back into a shelter.
The very lucky puppies and dogs that flew up on Thursday were available for adoption on Saturday, May 18th at the Village Green in Summit, New Jersey. Thanks to Home for Good and Pilots N Paws, fourteen of the twenty-two dogs went to their forever homes that day.
