RESCUE BY RELOCATION
FROM homeless TO HOPEFUL
PRP missions save more pets across greater distances in shorter periods of time. Every contribution increases the number of rescue flights we can make so only together will we reach our destination: a world where every pet has a loving forever home.
TOGETHER WE'll GO FARTHER
Our network coordinates with multiple rescue groups, so your donations
have wide-reaching impact!
Pet Rescue Pilots® is more than a transportation organization. We coordinate between our network of sending and receiving rescue groups up and down the west coast of the United States and Canada to help more pets find forever homes. All the pets we transport have vetted foster and adoption families upon arrival; they never go from shelter to shelter.
Fueled by donations, corporate, and private support, we can rise above statistics en route to a world where every pet has a loving, forever home.
FROM CENTRAL CALIFORNIA
TO PACIFIC NORTHWEST & CANADA
We create life-saving space in local shelters by flying pets out of overcrowded facilities in rural areas in California where they have a slim chance at being adopted, landing them in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada, where rescue groups do not have enough rescue pets to meet the number of open adoption applications.
WE GO THE EXTRA MILE
TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
We fly pets out of rural areas in New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas where lack of spaying and neutering leads to exponential increases in pet homelessness, and overcrowded shelters with as little as 48 hour holds contribute to high euthanasia rates, landing them in Southern California where there are more families looking to adopt than there are rescue pets available for adoption.
RESCUE BY RELOCATION
Approximately 1 million pets are euthanized in US shelters every year due to lack of space. A handful of states account for over 70% of this number, California being one of them.
By contrast, areas like the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia don’t have enough animals in their shelters to accommodate the number of families looking to adopt rescue pets. And while California struggles with overcrowded shelters in rural areas, Southern California’s metropolitan cities have more adoption applications than they have rescue pets to fill them.
By simply relocating these pets via air, our rescue network is able to get them adopted into loving forever homes within 2 weeks of arrival. We call this “Rescue by Relocation.”
