Asheville Dogs Take Flight for Adoption

Sometimes using a creative approach to pet adoptions makes all the difference in the world. In a recent life-changing trip, 36 lucky dogs and puppies from an ASPCA partner community agency, the Asheville Humane Society, received new chances to find loving forever homes. These sweet pups were transported by plane from North Carolina to Florida in an “Airlift of Love,” during the annual Pilots n Paws event.

Over the course of the event, 300 dogs were flown to parts of the country where there are plenty of willing adopters waiting to open their homes to shelter pets. This impressive event could be considered the largest canine rescue in American history!

Check out the video to follow these sweet dogs, including one special pup named Betty, on their exciting journey toward adoption.
