No More Tears Flight
Otis is a 1-year old Chihuahua that was rescued from a San Bernardino, CA high kill shelter. He was referred to as the “crying chihuahua” because shelter staff witnessed his family (a man and a woman) bring him to the shelter and surrender him. As they walked away, Otis cried.
The rescue community offered pledges to the rescue that would save him. Lou Wagner, founder of Kids Against Animal Cruelty, was supportive on FB, encouraging someone to save this dog.
A rescue in Northern California (Wags and Whiskers) offered to take Otis into their rescue, and Pilots N Paws pilots Bill Branch, Colin Rasmussen, Gary Cebrian, and Andy Barnes offered to fly him there. Lou’s response was a simple “Awesome” when the offer was announced.
Along with “No more Tears Otis” Wags and Whiskers saved 2 little chihuahuas, and Northern California Family Dog Rescue saved a very cute beagle chi mix named Toby that flew to his forever home.
