Wings of Rescue

 Flying Home




​"Every day, amazing dogs wake up for the last time in animal shelters nationwide..."

Wings of Rescue is a registered non profit 501c3 animal rescue organization (EIN# 45-3343408) based out of Van Nuys, CA.  We provide desperately needed air transport for our rescue partners and the thousands of animals they save each year from high kill shelters in California.  We fly them in private airplanes to their new forever homes and rescue organizations up and down the west coast, Idaho and sometimes into Canada.  In 3 1/2 years we have helped save more than 6200 animals that would have been certainly put to death in our California shelters due to the pet over population crisis.



                            HOLIDAY AIRLIFT UPDATE!!!


                         Wings of Rescue's 3rd annual Holiday Airlift was an AMAZING success!!!


We exceeded our original goal of flying 600 dogs and cats to safety!  The final count was 653 lucky rescued dogs and cats were flown to adoptive homes or rescue organizations for the Holidays!    We could not have done it without our amazing volunteer pilots, ground crews, rescue partners and so many more people that offered to help.  Wings of Rescue and our message about saving the animals received incredible media attention.  We received numerous emails from individuals on how they could adopt the dogs they saw on television or how they could help.
