Special Event: “Dog Is My Copilot” Rescue Flyway

Pilots N Paws “Dog Is My Copilot” Rescue Flyway
September 28-29, 2012

Chip, our coverboy , is in the book !

The weekend of September 28-29th Pilots N Paws will be holding its fourth annual awareness event, the “Dog Is My Copilot” Flyway, at the Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport (KEQY). Several pilots will fly in to KEQY Friday evening to prepare for Saturday morning’s mass transport of hopefully 200 or more animals out of this North Carolina base to rescues that can find forever homes for them. Early Saturday morning pilots will begin loading their planes with rescue animals from shelters and transporting them via relays to participating rescues that have the capabilities to find them forever homes.

The “Dog Is My Copilot” Flyway derived its name from the Pilots N Paws book by Patrick Regan that chronicles two dozen PNP rescue missions and was just released in June. The event is expected to be the largest one-day annual event in the history of Pilots N Paws. In 2011, pilots transported 174 dogs and 1 kitten out of Florence, SC in memory of the Chesterfield 22. After the BP oil spill in 2010, they flew 171 animals out of New Orleans. This year they expect to supersede their record of animals flown in one weekend.

  3. Hi, my name is Sindee Krakauer and my rescue group is Sindee’s Strays. I have been rescuing dogs, cats, puppies & kittens for 21 years. I was wondering if there might be any room on your “Dog is My Copilot” event for any other dogs or puppies. Also, which airports in the Northeast are they flying into?

  4. I have a request already posted but was wondering if there was room for one more from a San Antonio recuse to come North to CT

    Do we have a schedule of events for Friday and Saturday? Might help with flight planning.

  7. During the news segment aired in NY yesterday there were a few glimpses of a black puppy with long ears and paws dipped in white with one of them being a longer ‘sock’ with spots. How can I find out more about this puppy?
