FLYING FUR ANIMAL RESCUE

Saving animals, one rescue flight at a time.

Zieglerville, PA   |  www.flyingfur.org

Mission

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in south eastern PA founded on the idea of helping desperate animals in need. Every day, healthy, loving animals are euthanized, because they cannot get to areas where they would be adopted…we help to change that. Through a network of animal rescue organizations, ground transport, and volunteer pilots we help to transport animals from kill shelters to areas where they will be adopted, and given a second chance at life. Many times air transport is the safest and most efficient way to transport these animals. Usually we can help move animals from shelter to rescue within the same day.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Animal euthanization is an epidemic; our goal is to help save as many animals as we can. Currently that involves working with shelters in areas where they have limited time or no chance, and moving them to areas where they do.

Currently we are only limited in the number of animals we save by the aircraft we have available to complete these missions. Our current strategy is to acquire an aircraft under the organization that can be retrofitted, and used specifically for the rescue purpose.

We are a relentless, dedicated group, that will not stop as long as we can serve the mission. Through our animal rescue and aviation experience, we are skilled on the task at hand. Our primary focus is on efficiency, and maximizing the rescue on every flight.

We anticipated saving around 100 animals this year - to date we are on track to save over 150, in only 8 months of operation.

We still need a dedicated aircraft, among other things, that will be a primary focus for us in 2016.
