Who We Are

Pilots N Paws Canada brings together the skills of a community of volunteers that can provide free air transportation to Canadian rescues and shelters that need help getting their abused, abandoned and injured animals to new beginnings within Canada. Spreading from coast to coast, the network of volunteers, Transport Coordinators and pilots make moving animals to areas of greater opportunity for adoption a priority and provide ongoing support to the hundreds of Canadian animal rescues that need that help.Pilots, Deanna, Copilots and furry passengers
As a non-profit charity we rely on donations to keep our program going. Your support helps make rescues happen and allows us to do the outreach needed to ensure we have pilots to fly. Our volunteers across the country are invited to and attend both aviation and pet events in order to share with other Canadians what we are doing and inviting them to also help out.

Your donation helps us purchase crates and other equipment for the pilots to use as well helps us to assist rescues with food supplies and support when medical emergencies strike.

All these happen with your donations and every donation over $25 will receive a receipt for a tax donation you can use at tax time as we are a registered non-profit charity with Revenue Canada. (PNPC Animal Rescue BN#808636088RR0001)
We give a 100% volunteer commitment to making PNPC the best program for Canada we can and with your support – we will.

Max and Bear

In rescue there is rarely one hero.  For these two old boys from Northern Ontario, a LOT of people became involved.    Ten year olds Max and Baby Bear had been outside dogs for most of their lives, with a large space they could enjoy and a family that loved them, when things took a turn for the worse.   A new family had built and moved in next door changing their once open space into a confined hell.  No longer could they move about freely but instead had to be chained on their reduced property.  To make matters worse, the…

Search and Rescue Training Help

Saturday October 12, 2013 was a beautiful Fall day with blue skies and a definite feeling of Thanksgiving as Pilots N Paws Canada had its first experience with the training of Search and Rescue dogs. Members of an Ottawa based SAR dog training group contacted us asking if we would be willing to offer a little ‘plane’ time for their dogs in training to get more prepared to pass their tests.  In general most of these dogs only get their first exposure to planes or helicopters at the time they are going to help in a real situation when energy…
