ARLINGTON, Texas, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – With just days or hours to live, more than 300 dogs languishing in South Carolina kill shelters will be rescued and airlifted during Pilots N Paws’ “Big Flyway” on Saturday, Sept. 27, at the Greenville Downtown Airport in Greenville, South Carolina.
Multiple rescue organizations, along with Pilots N Paws supporter actress Pam Grier (a Golden Globe nominee for her title role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Jackie Brown”) and Prince Lorenzo Borghese, founder of Animal Aid USA, are taking part in one of the year’s largest single-day air and land animal rescues in the Southeast. Starting at 7 a.m., the dogs will be loaded carefully aboard planes, and more than 70 volunteer pilots will fly them to rescue organizations in New Jersey, Virginia and Florida, with the ultimate goal of finding each dog a forever home.

Petmate, a leading maker of innovative pet products, has supported Pilots N Paws for the past five years by donating more than $125,000 in pet travel gear to facilitate the safe transport of pets to rescue organizations across the country for adoption.
