#Pupdates! Back on August 29th, our founder Dean flew 19 puppies from Kentucky to Atlantic City, NJ and now, some of those puppies have been helping senior citizens in their new community! Staff at the Atlantic County Humane Society took some of the pups on a visit to Brandywine Living, a senior care community in Linwood, NJ - and the facility director and nursing director fell in love! Both decided to adopt and now, these special pups have begun formal training to become therapy dogs. Amazing! We are so pleased to know these Amelia Air alum will be providing therapeutic comfort to the seniors at Brandywine Living. Thank you to Jessie at AC Humane Society for this heartwarming update! 💙

Happy #NationalBlackDogDay from the team at Amelia Air! Celebrated annually on October 1st since 2011, this day promotes the adoption of black dogs, who have suffered the same “bad luck” stigma as black cats and are often the last to be adopted!

We love black dogs just as much as all of the other dogs we fly - and we can’t wait to rescue 21 more shelter dogs tomorrow! Stay tuned for our weekend updates! 🐾🐕‍🦺🐾🐕‍🦺🛩

Nothing is better than flying shelter pets straight into new homes! When Jessica saw beautiful Bonnie on Petfinder, she knew she had finally found the perfect companion for her dog Pip. There was just one problem - Bonnie was in Las Vegas! Luckily, our volunteer pilot David came to the rescue, flying Jessica to The Animal Foundation in time to adopt Bonnie - check out our video to see their first meeting in the shelter and more pics and video from this rescue! After her freedom flight to California, Bonnie is home, settling in, and playing nonstop with her new best friend Pip! Huge thanks to Jessica and her family for adopting, to David for flying, and to everyone who supports our mission to rescue shelter pets! 🐾

This is Pumpkin. Until last week, Pumpkin had a numbered tattoo instead of a name, had never felt grass, and had spent her entire life in a cage. Last Thursday, Pumpkin was one of 45 Beagles freed from a testing lab on Amelia Air’s first commercial flight, and our largest mission yet. Thanks to our remarkable friends at Priceless Pets, Pumpkin is now in foster and learning to be a beloved member of the family. She’s a natural, and nothing makes us happier than seeing her thrive! This is why we do what we do and we are so grateful to Priceless Pet Rescue and everyone who supports our mission to save animals 💙🙏🐾

Check out our recap video from yesterday’s amazing rescue of 45 Beagle breed dogs from a Flea and Tick laboratory testing facility in Texas. Amelia Air was thrilled to be able to arrange and fund our first ever commercial American Airlines flight to get these Beagles to LAX and into the arms of the dedicated team at Priceless Pet Rescue. Big thanks to Lisa and Ashlee at Priceless Pets, and to our co-founder Petra and West Coast logistics coordinator Adi, for all their efforts to ensure the success of this crucial lifesaving mission 🙏

Priceless Pets are desperately seeking fosters who are able to assist in socializing these animals as they have spent their whole lives in cages with no positive human interaction. Please reach out to them (@pricelesspetrescue) if you are interested in supporting this effort in any way. These dogs have lived their entire lives in cages being poked and prodded, never seeing the sun, feeling grass, or knowing the love and comfort of a home. The 45 beagles are part of a larger project being undertaken by the amazing Priceless Pets, who have freed 100+ beagles from the lab. We are so grateful they are all now safe from harm. 👏🐾🎉💙✈️

Big day at Amelia Air! We are so thrilled to announce that after intense logistical coordination, we have teamed up with Priceless Pets to ensure the safety of 45 Beagle breed dogs from a Flea and Tick laboratory testing facility in Texas. When presented with the chance to help free these dogs, Amelia Air sprung into action to arrange and fund our first ever commercial American Airlines flight to get these Beagles to LAX.

After initial exams at the Priceless Pets vet clinic in Chino Hills, CA, these lucky dogs will be eagerly looking for forever homes to call their own.

Priceless Pet Rescue is also desperately seeking fosters who are able to assist in socializing these animals as they have spent their whole lives in cages with no positive human interaction.

Yesterday’s East Coast rescue of 22 at-risk shelter dogs coincided with the Emmys on the West Coast, and the end of our incredible fundraiser with Allison Janney! The whole team at Amelia Air is overwhelmed with gratitude for the 1,217 individual donors who helped us raise $45,937 to advance our mission. This staggering amount will allow us to continue saving hundreds of animals, and grow our impact well into the future. Words cannot convey what this means to our founders Dean and Petra, to our team of volunteers, and most importantly, to the lives of all the innocent animals who will be saved 🙏 Thank you, once again, to all of our supporters for your unbelievable generosity - you are the difference between life and death for the animals we fly to safety. 🐾💙🛩

If you entered the sweepstakes for Allison’s autographed MOM memorabilia, the drawing will be held this Thursday, September 23rd! Lucky winners will receive an email from Stacy, so keep an eye on your inbox 💌
