Angel Flight for Henry

America holding Henry with pilot, Wayne

Saying goodbye to Henry was heartbreaking for his wonderful foster-mom, America, but she instantly knew he would be in good hands once she met Pilots N Paws volunteer pilot, Wayne, at the Pomona, CA airport yesterday morning. America told us that Wayne and his co-pilot Bill were “such kind gentlemen, they love dogs, and they were so happy to meet Henry.” We’re especially grateful to Wayne for generously donating his time, skills (and airplane!) to transport Henry. Once they arrived in Yuma, Arizona, Henry was met by his overnight-foster parents, Carolyn and Brian … of course, they already love him to pieces! The pictures below tell the story.

Today Henry will fly to Tucson with Pilots N Paws volunteer Eric and his wife Agnes. Stay tuned…
