Ever since 1939, August 19th has been celebrated as National Aviation Day, the legacy of a presidential proclamation first made by Franklin D. Roosevelt to celebrating the birthdate of civil aviation pioneer Orville Wright. So … we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to announce that Harley’s dad, Dan, is now a volunteer pilot for Pilots N Paws! He will be helping animals in need by providing air transportation as often as he is able.
Dan’s first PNP mission was on August 10th, when he, along with fellow pilot David Beattie, flew from Denver to Dodge City, Kansas and picked up 2 very sweet and lucky dogs. Twila and Susie Q (3-year-old Shepherd mix and 11-month-old Schnauzer mix) were saved from a high-kill shelter in Arkansas. Once they arrived in Denver, they were immediately taken into foster care with Summit Dog Rescue in Boulder, Colorado. What a great day it was!! Enjoy the pictures below.
Happy National Aviation Day and congratulations to Harley’s dad!
