Operation Pets Alive!
Pilots: Howard Turek, Mike Weimert
Handlers: Kristi Turek, Marcia Piotter
Hanks Flights teamed up with a local rescue called Operation Pets Alive! from The Woodlands, Texas to assist in transporting animals in need to rescues and shelters in the Northeast where they have very high re-homing of rescue animals. Operation Pets Alive pulls the animals in the local and very over crowed shelters, places them into foster homes for a period of two weeks for vetting needs and health checkups and then places them into our loving hands on their Flight for Life.
On December 5th 2014 we took 27 puppies and dogs to New Hampshire. All of the dogs were adopted within days of arriving and being placed up for adoption.
