Thank you all who reached out to ask about Paddington and for supporting our goal of saving 500 animals this year. 🙏🏻💙🐾🛩

Saving Paddington - March 29, 2021

Is there anyone more dedicated than our co-founder Petra?? Two days in a row, she‘s been out there rescuing animals! On Monday, Amelia Air learned that this sweet 9 week old puppy Paddington had been hit by a car and needed emergency surgery. Petra was able to jump in and fly Paddington from Portersville to Los Angeles, where his necessary medical treatment was waiting. We are so happy to have been there for Paddington, and we wish him the speediest recovery 🙏🏻🛩

Amelia Air’s West Coast team jumped into action on Sunday and flew five dogs who came from Tijuana all the way to the central coast of California. After being confined to a wheelchair, these dogs’ loving mom became concerned for their futures, should her condition worsen. Rather than risk an uncertain outcome, she contacted Casa de Love Rescue, who will now find them new furever families. Amelia Air is proud to step in and be the missing link! Thank you to everyone who supports our mission! 💙🐾🙏🏻🛩

Here is an extra-sweet pupdate from our most recent rescue with @dcpawsrescue! Van Gogh is now named “Tuka”, which means ‘honey’ or ‘sweetie’ in Hebrew! He's settling in nicely at his new home and even has a kitty sibling to keep him company!! Tuka also got a haircut and we think he’s looking handsome as ever. We are so glad that this senior fellow will get to live out his golden years in a loving home! 🙏💙✈️ 🐾
