Non-profit organizations Home for Good Dog Rescue and Pilots N Paws are teaming up to give about thirty rescue puppies and dogs the flight of their lives. Home for Good Dog Rescue is a foster-based rescue in Summit, New Jersey. They first started working with Pilots N Paws, a group that connects volunteer pilots with animal rescues, in January. The groups have formed a relationship and continue to work together to save the lives of innocent animals.  

On Thursday, May 16th, Home for Good will have their 4th plane transport through Pilots N Paws. This transport is a little different than the others; many volunteer pilots will coordinate to fly not one, but three planes from South Carolina to New Jersey with about 30 rescue dogs aboard! More planes equals more lives saved. The precious cargo will land at Morristown Airport and will then be transported to Home for Good’s offices in Berkeley Heights. The pups will be bathed, groomed and loved as they wait to be picked up by their foster families.  

Home for Good Dog Rescue is a 100% foster-based rescue; each dog that they save and bring back to New Jersey goes directly into a foster home in the local area. Home for Good has a network of about fifty dedicated foster families. These families play a huge part in saving the lives of these dogs. If you are interested in becoming a foster for Home for Good, fill out an application at “Your home is the best shelter a dog can have”…that is their motto. Once the pups travel from the kill shelters in the South up North, they will never again be put back into a shelter.
