Friday afternoon, up to 25 dogs rescued from the Bahamas are being flown to South Florida by Pilots N Paws, a non-profit organization whose mission is to save the lives of innocent animals.
The dogs were rescued from the streets of the Bahamas and would have been euthanized if Pilots N Paws and Bahamas authorities did not step in and partner with the Tri-County Humane Society.
The dogs are being flown into South Florida via a private plane to Pompano Beach Airpark.
The dogs, of various types and ages, will be available for adoption when the Tri-County Humane Society in Boca Raton opens for business on Saturday morning.
The Tri-County Humane Society is a no-kill animal rescue shelter that serves Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Martin Counties. It is located at 21287 Boca Rio Road, Boca Raton.
TCHS is open for adoptions Tuesday-Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information, call 561-482-8110.
The Pilots N Paws organization was founded in 2008. It currently has more than 3-thousand pilot volunteers and more than 10-thousand volunteers.
