Team

The team at Pilots To The Rescue hails from all sorts of backgrounds: aviation, hospitality, business administration. What brings us together is our love for animals. We hate seeing animals suffer, and we work our tails off (pun intended) to reduce the pet overpopulation crisis by putting more rescue animals in peoples’ homes.   

Interested in joining our team? Whether in the skies or on the ground, we could use your help. Come join our team and play a central role in a PTTR mission! When you work with us, you save the lives of dogs and cats who would otherwise be put down. If you want to make a real difference in the fight against animal cruelty, learn how you can join our team and share an experience you’ll never forget.
