PIE CHART
To save the lives of Southern CA shelter pets by flying them to no-kill organizations and forever homes in Washington, Idaho, Montana, and New York!
The Story
Each and every year thousands of pets are tragically euthanized in overcrowded Los Angeles animal shelters. The only way shelters can justify euthanasia is to label these animals as “unwanted.” We believe that no animal should be deemed unwanted. We believe the current system is unacceptable, but not hopeless. We believe it is fixable. There are many ways we can help solve the pet overpopulation crisis, and we are fighting every day to save lives through innovative efforts such as pet relocation.

That’s where the Fly Me Home Transport program comes in.



By partnering with no-kill shelters in the Pacific Northwest, in communities that do not have the overcrowding issues in their shelters like we have here in Los Angeles, we are saving lives. Bringing together volunteer pilots, private planes, many fantastic groups, and dedicated people, our Fly Me Home program now rescues shelter pets from high-kill Southern California shelters regularly, and transports them to no-kill organizations in Washington, Idaho, Montana, and most recently New York.

The Fly Me Home program expands adoption opportunities.


Not only do our no-kill partners have the room to receive these lucky souls, but they also have a 100% adoption rate. From their doors, pets are quickly adopted into loving homes. The very same pets who were at risk of being “unwanted,” now become what we always believed they were: wanted and loved.

The Fly Me Home Transport Program would not be possible without the amazing collaboration and partnership of Bark Avenue Foundation, Wings of Rescue, and Shelter Me, three powerful organizations working tirelessly with us to help homeless animals. Together we have relocated more than 1,500 dogs this year alone, and we plan on helping so many more.

We cannot continue this important work without your support.
It costs on average, $88 for each dog to be transported to freedom. We hope you will agree that there is no price for freedom, and that you will consider donating to our mission. Every cent of your donations will go exclusively to the animals in the Fly Me Home transport program.

With your help, we can get more of these pets to the right place at the right time.
Please join our team and donate a “Boarding Pass” for a pet in need. No amount is too small, and everything you do to share our message and spread news about our program helps Fly Me Home thrive. We are excited to welcome you to our live-saving crew, and we thank you for opening your hearts.
