More Than 600 Dogs and Cats Are Airlifted Out of Hawaii to Be Put Up for Adoption on the US Mainland

More than 600 adoptable cats and dogs were airlifted from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland in the largest animal rescue flight in history, according to Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency.

Dubbed “Paws Across the Pacific,” a chartered Hercules C-130 plane flew across the Hawaiian Islands on October 28, picking up dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters on Kauai, Oahu, and Maui.

“Pet shelters in Hawaii are in a COVID-19 crisis. Normal operations have been affected by months of shut down, economic downturn, limited hours, and routine flights to mainland halted,” said Liz Baker, CEO of Greater Good Charities, which supported the flight in partnership with Wings of Rescue. “The Paws Across the Pacific flight is urgently needed to make space in Hawaii’s shelters for at-risk pets who otherwise wouldn’t be able to receive necessary care to survive.”
