Praise Unique Effort to Save Shelter Dogs

Target: Yehuda Netanel, founder

Goal: Praise organization for saving animals at risk for euthanasia

A nonprofit organization called Wings of Rescue is saving thousands of healthy shelter dogs that would likely be euthanized by San Bernardino Animal Control. The organization has flown over 6,000 cats and dogs to low-kill shelters where they have a much better chance at survival.

Wings of Rescue transports dogs to new homes and rescue organizations along the West coast and Canada. The dogs are safely flown via a private jet by a group of volunteers. Wings of Rescue has transported dogs, cats, new mothers and puppies, and animals in need of medical care to safer locations.

San Bernardino Animal Control has recently received negative attention for its high euthanization rates. One animal rights activist told ABC news that the city isn’t doing enough to quell the overpopulation problem. A police officer who oversees the shelter told reporters that a full-time rescue coordinator will be hired to help San Bernardino control its animal population. In the meantime, several rescue organizations are helping to alleviate the burden. Because of these efforts, healthy animals are finding new homes instead of being euthanized.

Applaud the efforts of Wings of Rescue and their network of rescue organizations that have given thousands of animals a chance at life.


Dear Yehuda Netanel,

Wings of Rescue is an innovative and compassionate organization that shows just how important it is to persevere and think outside the box. It serves as a wonderful example to the community, who may think that there is nothing they can do about shelter overpopulation.

Your organization has not only improved the lives of animals, but brought national attention to a problem that needs immediate action. Shelter overpopulation is not only an issue in San Bernardino, but an issue that has spread across the entire country. We hope that other shelters and rescues will see Wings of Rescue and be inspired to make their own innovative efforts to stop shelter overpopulation.

We would like to thank you for saving thousands of animals and drawing attention to such a crucial issue.
