On Saturday, Sept. 27, Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue in Royal Palm Beach again participated in the Pilots and Paws Freedom Flight.
The all-volunteer staff members are repeat participants in the annual event, dedicated to saving animals at risk of euthanasia, helping them find happy endings with loving families, in a loving home.
Those at Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue not only save as many animals as they can, but improve the quality of life for these animals while they are in their care.
When waiting for the flights to arrive, volunteers were already on the runway with food, treats and necessary supplies to help the new arrivals.
More than 50 planes were used, flown entirely by volunteer pilots.
Several hundred pounds of puppy food was donated by both Woof Gang Bakery and Christie Banks of Sunny 107.9.
Toys, treats and grooming supplies were donated by Mary Wong of the Office Depot Foundation.
After their flights to freedom, all animals are given vet checks, and are spayed/neutered before a caring, forever home is found.
