Kiss gets ready to fly to her new home in Toronto. She landed at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport which has partnered with Pilots N Paws Canada to transport abandoned and abused animals to new homes.
This year, the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (BBTCA) helped to transport 25 sick, injured or homeless animals to Toronto. By sponsoring Pilots N Paws Canada and waiving landing fees for its volunteer pilots, BBTCA helped these animals find their second chance at a happy and healthy life.
“Pilots N Paws Canada brings together the skills of a community of volunteers to provide free air transportation to Canadian animal rescues and shelters that need help getting abused, abandoned and injured animals to new beginnings within Canada,” said Pilots n Paws Canada Founder Gini Green.
“The Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport is proud to work with Pilots N Paws Canada,” said Executive Vice President of Toronto Port Authority and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport Gene Cabral. “For many of us, animals are family members and hold a special place in our hearts, and we are honoured to play a role helping these animals get a second chance at living happy and healthy lives.”
This past summer, one dog named Kiss, who was transferred through Pilots N Paws from Québec to Toronto, won over the hearts of volunteers and rescue workers. Not long after she arrived at BBTCA, Kiss was given her second chance and adopted by her new family.
