On July 5th, Pilots To The Rescue volunteer pilot Victor Girgenti headed out on a mission from New York down to North Carolina to meet Maverick Rescue & Transport. There he picked up 10 homeless dogs in need – dogs rescued by A New Chance Animal Rescue from overwhelmed and overcrowded shelters in NC and SC.
The dogs all had different stories -some were strays, some unwanted, others the victims of circumstances beyond their control. Each had been quarantined at A New Chance Animal Rescue’s partner vet, where they received their vaccinations and health certificates to prepare them for travel.
PTTR’s pilot Victor flew the dogs back to New York where he was met by volunteers from A New Chance, who transported the dogs to their Bedford facility, where they were walked, fed, and tucked in for their first night in the Big Apple, with many enjoying their first evening in new foster homes.
According to Sophia Silverman, A New Chance Animal Rescue “The dogs who came up last weekend are all settling in wonderfully and are such sweethearts!”
