Sheltair Offers Fuel Discounts For Animal Rescue Flights

Volunteer pilots with charity Pilots N Paws will be assigned digital discount cards to present at the FBO’s customer service desks.

Aviation service provider Sheltair has partnered with animal rescue charity Pilots N Paws to assist with the costs associated with rescue flights. The announcement was made in recognition of International Dog Day.  Sheltair is based in Florida, one of five states that together account for 50 percent of all animal euthanasias in the U.S.

Since its founding in 2008, Pilots N Paws members have saved the lives of more than 200,000 animals by flying them to areas with no-kill shelters. The charity has more than 6,000 aviation-related volunteers, and through the agreement with Sheltair, its registered volunteer pilots will be assigned digital cards to present at the FBO's customer service desks to receive fuel discounts when flying rescue missions.
