When natural disasters strike, rescue groups mobilize. One of the ways they prepare to save the lives of pets in the affected area is to relocate pets already in shelters to nearby states. Doing this makes space in the local shelters for all the pets that will become displaced because of the natural disaster.
Before Hurricane Barry made landfall, Wings of Rescue loaded up 150 at-risk animals from shelters in Mississippi and Louisiana and flew them to nearby states to be placed no-kill shelters. This mission was made possible by a grant from Greater Good, which was funded by iHeartDogs through your purchases!
Two of the precious fur babies on these flights were Hogan and Timmy. Thanks to YOU, these pups have started new lives in loving homes.

About Wings of Rescue
Wings of Rescue helps transport animals from high-risk or high-intake shelters to safer places. They cut transportation time significantly, which saves lives of those animals in need of medical interventions. Ground transport can take 24 hours or more, leading to pets being stuck in a crate without any food, water or walks for far too long. Most of their flights are completed within 3 to 4 hours, which is far easier for the animals to tolerate.
Their work is funded completely from donations and the incredible generosity of their volunteer pilots. They work with no-kill shelters and rescue groups across North America.
Thanks to our partnership with Greater Good, your purchases on iHeartDogs helps save lives, feed dogs, and bring happy endings to the lives of these adorable pups in need through the Second Chance Movement.
