Summary and Info
As a decorated helicopter pilot, Sam Taylor flew Search and Rescue missions during the Vietnam War. Today, his rescue work is closer to home—and extremely close to his heart. Taylor is one of roughly 2,000 private pilots who volunteer their time and their planes to fly abused, neglected, and homeless dogs from “high-kill” animal shelters to new “forever” homes across the country.Dog Is My Copilot tells the story of Pilots N Paws, a high-flying animal rescue operation founded “accidentally” in 2008 when a private pilot offered to fly a mission of mercy to save an abused dog for a friend. Once on the ground, the pilot asked his friend if there was a big need to transport shelter animals from one part of the country to another. She responded, “You have no idea.” Since that time Pilots N Paws has grown to include thousands of pilots who have transported tens of thousand of “death-row dogs” (and a fair amount of cats and other animals), sometimes more than 1,000 miles away to new homes or no-kill shelters where they have a much higher chance of adoption. The true heart of Dog Is My Copilot are the 24 real-life rescue stories collected from pilots and their animal rescue counterparts on the ground. The short, captivating stories are accompanied by over 100 charming, poignant, color photos—most taken by the pilots themselves—of their canine passengers in flight. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Pilots N Paws organization
