PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Help is on the way. The Pittsburgh organization “No Dog Left Behind” goes to Texas.
The organization aims to save more than a dozen dogs from recent devastating storms.
Shelters in the Lone Star State say they are overwhelmed and simply do not have the resources to help all animals.
On Friday, the organization reloaded supplies with the help of PAART and flew to Houston.
There are plans to rescue at least 15 dogs and bring them to an Atlanta animal shelter.
The volunteer pilots immediately dropped everything to make this possible.
“When we found out about this yesterday, I had no choice but to drop everything I had planned and make my way to Texas,” said Dave Stash, a land pilot with PAART.
“As Pittsburghers, we are passionate about helping, so we’re going to Houston to help the dogs,” added Stash.
This is No Dog Left Behind’s fifth mission in 2021 – 70 animals have been rescued to date.
