Another weekend, another Amelia Air rescue! After pulling them from the euthanasia list just in time, we flew these two sweet seniors to our friends at Central Coast Herding Rescue, who will take care of them until they find new homes. These two couldn't have been friendlier, and there are so many amazing older animals at shelters who are laid back, loving, and still ready for an adventure - just look at this pair!

Hope everyone is staying safe this Monday! Thinking of our West Coast team & followers as California battles insane wildfires. This photo is from a rescue mission flown by Petra, an Amelia Air volunteer (and niece of superstar actress & donor Allison Janney !), who flew these pups to a herding dog rescue in Paso Robles, CA. How many dogs can you find in the picture?

All Aboard Amelia Air!!

Hello to all our new followers & welcome aboard Amelia Air!! We hope you enjoy the ride - like sweet Butter, one of the 14 dogs we rescued yesterday from South Carolina, who was a natural aviator!

To give you a quick intro, less than a year ago we launched our new nonprofit to save at-risk dogs from overcrowded shelters by flying them to new families, or to rescue organizations. Our charity was inspired by our founders' adopted Great Dane, who was named after the great Amelia Earhart because she never misses a chance to climb into the cockpit!

Donate today at www.ameliaair.org and follow along here for all our adventures rescuing animals. Thanks for joining our mission to save lives!!

Amelia Air welcomes its newest pilot!

Petra has been an incredibly passionate volunteer for Amelia Air, bringing an energy and love of rescuing dogs, publicity for our mission, and funding streams to make this all possible. TODAY she's a new pilot! She's joined the ranks of Chuck Yeager, Charles Lindbergh, Bob Hoover, and yes - Amelia Earhart! We are VERY proud to welcome her to the ranks of certificated pilots in the Unites States, and are so grateful to have such a capable person by our side! We hope you all enjoy a few excerpts of her achievements along the way, and smile along with her!

Congratulations Petra Janney - you've earned a very special place in our hearts! A job very well done!
