Rescue animals get a new leash on life

While some dogs lead a charmed life, others are not so lucky. Most animal shelters will hold stray dogs for as little as five days before putting these pooches to death.

But groups of high-flying volunteers are stepping in to give these canines a new leash on life. Through the “Pilots N Paws” program, volunteer pilots offer to fly these rescue animals across the country to where new homes and wagging tails are on the horizon.

The fur was certainly flying as My Generation got a first-hand look at these life-saving flights to freedom.
