Pilot marks 1,000th volunteer dog transport


A Florida pilot who regularly volunteers his time and his Cirrus aircraft to transport dogs between rescue shelters logged his 1,000th canine passenger last week. Jeff Bennett has been volunteering for Pilots N Paws, the charity transport group, for only three years, taking several dogs on each mission. The group matches willing pilots with dogs who need to be moved from overcrowded shelters that would otherwise euthanize them; Pilots N Paws makes sure that the dogs end up at no-kill shelters or in foster homes while they await adoption. For his part, Bennett pulls out the two rear seats of his Cirrus to fit the dogs, in each in its own crate. He flies throughout the Southeast, though he lives in the Florida Keys. Bennett describes himself as a dog lover, and has four dogs of his own.
