First Rescue

In the summer of 2014, friends Michael Schneider & Brian Orter embarked on their first rescue mission. A litter of abandoned “ditch” puppies, a Chihuahua and some mutts from North Carolina were slated to be euthanized. Springing into action, Michael and Brian rose to the occasion and volunteered their piloting skills for the last leg delivering 10 dogs so they could be adopted by loving homes.
