Good things happen when dog rescue volunteers team up as shown in this Pilots N Paws Lifeline Weimaraner Rescue video from August 19, 2012. Video duration (01:01 min./sec.)
Video Narration Transcript
Volunteer pilot Jasone and wife Ava arrived by private plane August 19 at Kissimmee Jet Center in Florida with two Weimaraner dogs rescued from a Georgia shelter.
Watch as female Weims Bella and Betty Sue unload and greet Lifeline staff and shake off the effects of their exciting plane ride.
Listen as pilot Jasone gives a brief overview of the Pilots N Paws volunteer non-profit organization.
“Pilots N Paws is an organization that helps rescue dogs. We transport dogs from city to city on airplanes, and all the pilots donate their time and the fuel to get the dogs to places where they need to be.”
Bella and Betty Sue wait in the truck, and then leave en route to the Lifeline Dog Rescue facility in Okeechobee, Florida.
Please visit both our websites to learn more.
Credits Due to the Great Rescue VolunteersWe are indebted to a large group of volunteers who made this transport possible including Jamie at Lee County Animal Control, Liz our transport volunteer who arranged the flight and coordinated the itinerary with military precision, local Georgia volunteers and fosters who picked up and later brought the dogs to the airport, and Chris Ridgeon for meeting the flight in Florida and driving both to Lifeline Dog Rescue in Okeechobee, Florida.
The footage, edit, graphics and Lifeline background theme music original composition and narration are by Lifeline webmaster, Jim Degerstrom, and copyright Central Florida Weimaraner and Dog Rescue, Inc. dba Lifeline Dog Rescue.
We are so grateful for the privilege to partner with Pilots N Paws on dog rescue mission flights, and truly appreciate the support of all the other volunteers who team up with us for such amazing rescues. Special thanks go out to all.
Readers may learn more at the website of the Pilots N Paws 501c3 Non-profit Charity organization and their group of over 2500 volunteer pilots. Please donate while there.
Female Weimaraners Bella and Betty Sue are in evaluation at Lifeline. We knew Betty Sue was heartworm positive, so her treatment and recovery could take months. Bella should be listed soon, and both may be ready or adopted by the time you view this video.
This was not our first, and very likely not our last, team effort to rescue at risk dogs with the help of all those volunteers and the wonderful pilots we have met from Pilots N Paws.
Watch our delightful rescue dog Charlie enjoy playing with other dogs and in the lake at Lifeline Dog Rescue in Florida. The full text narration of his video is included below for persons who prefer to read or the hearing impaired. (Playtime: 04:36 min./sec.)
Narration of the Story of Charlie the Rescue Dog
This video shows Charlie the rescue dog 3 days after his March 15th 2012 arrival at Lifeline Dog Rescue in Okeechobee, Florida.
We nicknamed him Chocolate Charlie. You’ll notice he is a bit tentative about getting in the lake.
Charlie was pulled from a kill shelter in N Carolina by a local rescue group, and then held in temporary foster while volunteer coordinators arranged transportation to Florida.
Two pilots from Pilots N Paws, a nonprofit group of volunteer pilots who transport rescue pets in their private planes, brought Charlie to Florida. Charlie flew from N Carolina to Georgia with pilot Richard, and then Georgia to Florida with pilot Michael.
We owe a special thanks to them and all the volunteers involved in making this happen.
Charlie has adjusted well. He arrived on March 15th, quickly passed evaluation, and all footage in this video was taken on Sunday, March 18th. Early the next week he was neutered and then listed as available for adoption on March 23rd.
The large private lake on the 3 acre fenced property of Lifeline Dog Rescue is a centerpiece of recreation where all our dogs run and play nearly every day.
Charlie is a happy and friendly puppy, and gets along well with people plus all the other dogs, large and small.
The vet estimates his age at around 15 months. Contrary to identification by the public kill shelter, we have listed him as a Pointer Mix.
The white Pointer with brown markings in this video, and being followed around by Chocolate Charlie, is also named Charlie.
He’s 1, and runs constantly chasing down butterflies and dragonflies around the lake.
Chocolate Charlie thinks it’s a running game, or game of tag, as he follows the other Charlie round and round the lake. He doesn’t realize his pal Charlie is hunting.
The more he plays and observes the other dogs enjoying the lake, Charlie finally gives up on the running game and takes to the water.
The experience is obviously very new. Notice how delighted he is just splashing. He carefully studies cause and effect, and quickly learns his front paws can create splash on demand.
At other times he spins and turns in the water. The smiles and obvious joy of being a puppy is a thrill to watch.
Eventually the exercise takes its toll, and it’s nap time. In a minute we show Charlie resting on a pile of sand left over from recent construction adding runs to the rescue property. He checks left and right before settling in for a well deserved break.
Chocolate Charlie certainly has above average looks and personality. He may or may not be adopted by the time you view this video. Visit our website at LifelineDogRescue.org and check under the tab for Our Dogs to see if he’s still listed.
Check out all the other dogs while there, and please share our work with friends on Facebook or Twitter, as well.
The staff of Lifeline Dog Rescue looks forward to many more happy stories like The Story of Charlie the Rescue Dog.
