Ruff flight! 500 dogs airlifted to new homes
Wings of Rescue's third annual Holiday Airlift saved 500 dogs from overcrowded shelters in southern California and flew them to the Pacific Northwest, thanks to volunteer pilots and thousands of dollars in donations.
The dogs were airlifted to Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana, where they were met by local rescue groups and new owners who took the dogs to forever homes.
