June 22, 2009, La Quinta, California — Desert Jet, the jet charter provider for the Palm Springs area, has teamed with Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue, an animal rescue organization, to provide transport for animals rescued from puppy mills. Through the alliance with this non-profit organization, Desert Jet provides free air transportation for animals rescued from puppy mills that need to travel long distances to unite with their new foster and adopted families.
Puppy mills are mass dog-breeding operations where dogs live their entire lives in filthy cages, only to be used as breeding stock for more dogs. These animals receive little or no veterinary care and never see a bed, a treat or a toy. After their fertility wanes, breeding animals are commonly killed, abandoned or sold to another mill. Occasionally, these dogs are put up for auction. Lucky Star’s mission is to rescue Cavaliers of breeding age, provide medical care, and then find a permanent, caring home for the animal.
Since forging this alliance with Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue in May, Desert Jet has participated in two different rescue transports. Most recently, Desert Jet transported six dogs from a recently-raided puppy mill in Missouri to waiting foster families in California. See the video of the arrival on our community page.
