The May Good Flight saved 119 dogs and cats from the threat of being euthanized!
On May 17th, we flew 119 dogs and cats rescued from overcrowded shelters in Louisiana to Morristown, New Jersey—where they will be quickly adopted into loving homes!
Most of these pets are at high risk, and without this Save a Heart Flight, may not have survived.
You can help! Just $5 helps cover the fuel costs of flying a pet 125 miles towards safety. If you are able to contribute, please help these pets reach safety and a second chance at a happy life!
If you are a heartworm positive dog in an overcrowded shelter in the South, your chances of making it out of the shelter are slim.
According to the American Heartworm Society, Louisiana is one of the leading states in heartworm infection rates in this country, putting heartworm positive shelter dogs at a higher risk of euthanasia due to length of care, space required, and the prohibitive cost of treatment.
We want to give these dogs a second chance at a happy life. That’s why Greater Good Charities’ Good Flights program announced our inaugural Save a Heart mission with two flights on April 19th and 20th, which saved more than 150 at-risk shelter dogs from seven shelters in the south. These flights were a wonderful success, helping so many dogs find their forever families in loving adoptive homes. But the mission isn't over. We still need your lifesaving support to fund upcoming Save a Heart flights.
In addition to the shelter pets we're flying to safety, your support will provide enrichment, comfort supplies, and treatment for an additional 2,500 heartworm positive shelter dogs who will stay in the South to be treated and adopted. That’s over 3,500 heartworm positive dogs saved. Plus, these transports make room for additional pets who otherwise wouldn’t have a chance.
Greater Good Charities' Save a Heart mission has been made possible thanks to our partners below. We have committed this year to flying 1,000 asymptomatic heartworm positive shelter dogs in the South to freedom on the East Coast, where we will treat them until they are cured and ultimately adopted into loving homes.
