Reggie’s Sky-High Adventure: A Tale of Hope and New Beginnings

Ever wondered how some animals find their way across Canada to shelters, loving homes, or specialized care? The answer: they fly with Canadian Wings of Rescue.

Canadian Wings of Rescue (CWoR) is a volunteer-run federally registered charity which collaborates with several Canadian rescue groups, shelters, and/or wildlife rehabilitation centers when they are faced with a transportation need. In such cases, CWoR arranges short flights via its volunteer pilots.

Here’s an up close and personal account of a recent CWoR flight for an 18-month-old Irish Setter, Reggie.

It was a frosty February morning in Sarnia, Ontario, when the selfless volunteers from Canadian Wings of Rescue and Tail Wind   prepared for an exciting mission to the City with Heart of Gold, aka Timmins, Ontario. Tailwind Rescue is a not-for-profit organization that provides flights to animals for rescue and relocation.

The sun cast a soft glow on the small aircraft that would soon become a lifeline for taking our rescue Reggie to his forever family in Timmins, Ontario.

Pilot Matthew Gross from Tail Wind Rescue was at the helm of the transport operation. His eyes sparkled with determination and compassion as he met Reggie and got ready for the two-hour flight to Reggie’s new home.

As Reggie hopped on-board the Moone , he was more than just a furry passenger with doleful eyes and docile temperament. He was a symbol of hope, and a  testament to the power of second chances. His constantly wagging tail spoke volumes.

Up in the air, as the plane soared through the azure skies, Reggie embarked on the journey of a lifetime. Each mile covered was a step closer to his new home, a step closer to the love and   that awaited him. Matthew’s company had a very calming effect on Reggie, and he snuggled up and dozed off soon after the plane took off, perhaps dreaming about his upcoming adventures!

Reggie’s journey is a testament to the power of love and compassion. It’s a story that reminds us of the difference we can make in the lives of animals in need. As we share this story, we would like to take a moment to extend our heartfelt gratitude to volunteer pilots, our generous donors who make it possible for us to do the work we do, families that adopt a rescue and our supporters who cheer us from the sidelines on our social media platform.

Stay tuned as we continue to share updates on Reggie’s journey and other heartwarming rescue stories. Together, we’re changing lives, one flight at a time.

Canadian Wings of Rescue is a volunteer-run organization that welcomes donations. Your support would mean the world to us. Interested? Please visit our website!
