Rescue Flight Helps 23 Senior Shelter Dogs Find Homes So 'No Old Dog Dies Alone and Afraid'

It's a heartwarming senior-only adventure!

To celebrate reaching 125 flights and helping 2,500 shelter pets find forever homes — through cost-free plane trips for pets from overcrowded shelters to rescues with rooms to adopt out animals — Pet Rescue Pilots (PRP) planned a flight with only senior dogs (canines age 7 or older) on the passenger list.

According to a press release from the Los Angeles-based nonprofit, on Nov. 5, PRP flew 23 senior dogs from rural shelters with less space in California to Oregon, where rescue organizations RSQ209, Oregon Coast Humane Society, Loved Again Pets, and Bichons and Buddies greeted the canines and helped them settle into foster homes or in with their adoptive families.
