On Friday, Feb. 15, Home for Good Dog Rescue teamed up with the non-profit organization called Pilots N Paws to fly 17 rescue dogs from South Carolina to New Jersey. Pilots N Paws is an organization that connects volunteer pilots with rescues to help save the lives of animals in need. This was Home for Good’s second transport with Pilots N Paws; the first was on Jan. 27 with four dogs aboard the flight.

Vice President of Pilots N Paws, Nick O’Connell, and his friend and co-pilot, Oneil Jones, flew the dogs into Morristown Municipal Airport at 3:30 p.m. on Friday. The puppies were greeted by Home for Good volunteers who helped bring the pups back to their office to get ready to go to their foster homes. All of the dogs are fed, bathed, groomed and micro-chipped before going home with their foster family. Home for Good Dog Rescue is a foster-based organization; in place of a shelter, they have a network of dedicated foster families that open their hearts and homes to the dogs until they find their forever families.

Thirteen of the puppies on Friday’s flight are Lab mixes that were abandoned and found by a friend of Home for Good Dog Rescue in South Carolina. The other four dogs are a black Lab mix puppy named Logan, a Shepherd mix puppy named Dalton, a Collie mix puppy named Madison and a Terrier mix puppy named Rufus. You can see all of the puppies from the Pilots N Paws transport as well as all other adoptable dogs on Home for Good’s website www.homeforgooddogs.org. While you’re there, consider filling out an adoption, foster or volunteer application. The organization is always looking for people to help them continue on their mission.
