A litter of wild pups
Our second rescue flight was in the dead of winter, on a quick flight down to Blacksburg, VA (home of Virginia Tech) in a rented Cessna 310N. These 6 puppies were abandoned and a shelter had to get them out of their property or risk being euthanized. Since the Washington DC area has such a large population density, our local rescues were more than happy to take these adorable pups to be adopted.
This plane is much faster than the Piper Saratoga we used to rent, so the trip down to Blacksburg took less than an hour. A quick turnaround with the beautiful dogs ready to go when we arrived, including their paperwork. We loaded them up, and off we went – flying over the Virginia Tech stadium on our way back to Leesburg and life and happiness for 6 gorgeous puppies.
