Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Animal Rescue Flights! Join now by scrolling down on this page.

Animal Rescue Flights promotes, plans, and performs the process of moving animals from overcrowded shelters where they face certain death to other parts of the country where qualified families are waiting to adopt them.

We are looking for pilots, student pilots, and non-pilots who can contribute their time and skills in planning, performing, and promoting this effort. Join now and let us know how you can help!
