The wide, frightened eyes of Bambi the Chihuahua made her stand out among hundreds of homeless canines Evenhaim and other volunteer pilots flew out of California last month to states with high demand for dogs and shelters with policies against putting them to death. "There is much more of a trend toward transporting to get animals adopted," said Justin Scally, national director of emergency services for the American Humane Association. Last month, the nonprofit group run by volunteer pilots flew more than 500 abandoned small- to medium-size dogs from overcrowded California shelters to "no-kill" operations in the U.S. Northwest, where demand for smaller dogs is higher, said Wings of Rescue co-founder Cindy Smith.
