Super Dog on Super Bowl Sunday

Realizing that I’m stuck in here with a lampshade on my head; did I just hear staff correctly?  It’s Super Bowl Sunday and millions of people are going to watch a team of Broncos and a cast of Seahawks chase a pigskin in the Garden State.

Hey, if you’ll get me outta’ here on Tuesday when the Adoption Center opens at 11am, I’ll learn to chase a pigskin and you can call me Super Dog and we’ll celebrate Super Bowl Sunday every week.  Doesn’t that sound like fun?

Holiday Airlift 2013 – Saving Dogs from Euthanization

Humane Society of Northwest Montana Partners with Wings of Rescue Volunteer Pilots Save Dogs from Euthanization

Thanks to the coordinated efforts by Wings of Rescue, the Charlotte Edkins Animal Adoption Center welcomed 20 small breed dogs from California on Friday evening, December 6th. As winds roared and temperatures dropped to -9 degrees at Glacier Jet Center, local volunteer pilot, Bob and crew member, Michelle carefully unloaded crates from a private plane while Humane Society staff loaded the 20 Chihuahua mix dogs into a warm van.  Followed by a short ride to the Adoption Center, all dogs were made comfortable in their new kennels and now await forever homes.

Wings of Rescue

This is the third Holiday Airlift that Wings of Rescue has made happen in order to save the lives of animals that would have otherwise been euthanized.  Wings of Rescue is a non-profit organization that consist of volunteer pilots who donate their time to transport animals from high kill animal shelters to rescue organizations in the North West.  Wings of Rescue is based in Van Nuys, California and has saved 5,400 animals over the last three years.
