Last week we saw a photo posted of a pregnant dog that had begun to give birth as it entered a South Carolina shelter’s doors. We did not want to stress this little family by transporting her in a van for a 20 hour ride. So we enlisted the help of a group of volunteer pilots called Pilot and Paws.Today despite a snowstorm Steve aka Santa, flew our little family from South Carolina to the Westchester County Airport .
Mid-December our very own Santa Claus, Steven Gill, flew a Mom and 10 (10 day old) pups from Greenville, SC to White Plains NY.
We are so very grateful to Pilots n Paws for everything they have done for us, and their continued commitment to saving the lives of animals all around the globe. May God Bless each and every one of you. I know it is an experience we will never forget.
A heartfelt thanks for all that you do!

Back at the shelter, Stacey is still trying to figure out where the grass is.
December 14, 11 days later Pilot Steve from %22Pilots and Paws%22 volunteered to fly the family up from South Carolina. Here is the moment the plane landed and Steve carried out the Labrador mom.
It was now about 4-30 pm and the snow was falling fast. Poor Stacey was not used to the cold wind.
On December 3rd a very thin, pregnant Lab mix was surrendered by her owners. She’d already given birth to one pup as she was surrendered. By morning %22Stacey%22 had given birth to ten more puppies.
Poor baby, so confused.
Reunited with her babies! Stacey immediately began to clean her puppies.
Welcome Stacey and Thank you Steve!!
Welcome Stacy! Steve is walking Stacy, we dubbed Steve our very own Santa, for flying this little family to safety.
