Saving animals, one rescue flight at a time.
Will you help save a shelter animal? Please consider donating today.
Flying Fur Animal Rescue was founded in 2015. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in south eastern Pennsylvania that was founded on the idea of helping desperate animals in need, in a unique fashion. The founder spends over $10,000 a year, out-of-pocket, to help save more lives.
Every day, healthy, loving animals throughout this country are condemned to euthanization, simply because they cannot get to other areas where they would otherwise be adopted…we help to change those odds.
We operate along the east coast of the North America, where there is a large need for transport. Normally our rescue missions involve moving animals from kill shelters in the south to no-kill shelters in the northeast. Each transport averages around $500 (aircraft), currently paid for out of pocket. We have no administrative overhead, salaries or extra costs.
Through a network of animal rescue organizations and ground transport, we help to move animals from kill shelters to areas where they will be adopted, and given a second chance at life. Many times air transport is the safest and most efficient way to transport these animals. Usually we can help move animals from shelter to rescue within the same day.
