Summer of 2014 – First Rescue
Michael Schneider & Brian Orter embarked on their first mission to rescue a litter of abandoned “ditch” puppies, from North Carolina that were slated to be euthanized. This rescue delivered 10 dogs to be adopted by loving homes.
Less than a year later, with the powerful life curriculum taught at Landmark, Michael’s dream combining his love of aviation and rescuing animals turned into a reality. In less than 48 hours, Michael enrolled those closest to him and raised more than $10,000 in startup funds for Pilots To The Rescue.
Pilots To The Rescue (PTTR) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven, 501c3 public benefit aviation organization. PTTR’s mission is to transport domestic and endangered animals at risk. PTTR supports its network of trained volunteer pilots so they can focus on their missions and do the greater good.
