‘Pilots to the Rescue’ touches down in Biddeford, bringing plane full of animals from Virginia

17 cats and one dog will be cared for by the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland


The organization ‘Pilots to the Rescue’ worked with the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland Thursday afternoon to bring more than a dozen animals from Virginia and North Carolina to Maine. A plane full of 17 cats and one dog touched down around 2 p.m. at the Biddeford Municipal Airport, piloted by Michael Schenider, one of the founders of ‘Pilots to the Rescue.’ The organization transports at-risk animals and connects them with shelters across the country. Schneider said his mission in Maine was a rewarding one and saved one dog from being euthanized. He also described what it was like to pilot a small plane full of animals. “They might bark a little bit or meow a little bit, but once you start up the engine, the vibration, the noise, they generally just go to sleep,” said Schneider, the founder of Pilots to the Rescue. “So they were good ‘pawsengers,’ as we say.”The animals will be cared for by the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland and volunteers there haven’t yet revealed when they may be available for adoption.
