JetLoan Capital & Dog Rescue
Prior to Melanie’s passing, she dedicated her time to working with a dog rescue operating in Florida, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned dogs and redirecting them to stable, loving environment that served as their forever home or the bridge to their forever home.
The Rescue a (501c3) is a no-kill dog rescue based in New England. They rescue abandoned, abused and often neglected dogs from states with significant overpopulation issues and work tirelessly to place them in loving, responsible homes. They have been committed to dogs of all ages, breeds and those who may have pre-existing medical conditions.
The state of Florida has a staggering 200,000+ dogs that run through statewide shelter systems every year. In Miami alone, intake averages between 70-100 dogs per day.
For a shelter that can only officially house 400 dogs, euthanasia is a sad reality for most. Each day healthy, adoptable dogs lose their lives. But we can do better!!
Paws Up for Pets
Paws Up for Pets: Rescued dogs join the jet set on their way to new homes
Tapping into her connections in the airline industry, Melanie worked out an arrangement with Ameriflight, a cargo airline company. It turns out that an Ameriflight plane full of medical supplies lands at the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport every Friday. It would then turn around and fly empty back to Bedford, Mass., to retrieve more medical supplies.
So, Melanie approached Ameriflight officials about filling its cargo plane with pets in need of homes in New England and Paws Up For Pets was born.
