A special message from Jason Hilt, Foundation President:
The flight from Orlando to State College went off without a hitch. The passengers were calm and slept most of the flight. The most active greyhound on the trip was Flyer who spent much of the flight quietly looking out the window at the ever changing landscapes. We would like to thank God’s Greyts Greyhound Group, Nittany Greyhounds, the volunteers in Florida and Pennsylvania, all of the sponsors and contributors, and the hospitality of representatives at Apopka Airport in Florida and University Park airport in Pennsylvania. The warm welcome by everyone at the University Park airport was wonderful. Planning and coordination by the many people on the ground made the trip a success and laid the framework for future successful flights. We look forward to our next transport flight and are truly appreciative of everyone’s contribution.
Flying to Forever Homes
On January 16, 2014, the Brave Tide Foundation plane and crew flew from Pottstown, Pennsylvania, to Orlando, Florida, to arrange the transport of six beautiful greyhounds from God’s Greyts Greyhounds in FL to the Nittany Greyhounds group in PA. The flight en route was filled with stunning east coast scenery including views of the Chesapeake and Florida coastline. After a brief stop in South Carolina, the crew arrived in Orlando safe and sound and ready to prepare for the dogs’ flight home to Nittany Greyhounds!
On Friday morning, January 17, the caring humans from God’s Greyts Greyhounds helped Brave Tide prepare the dogs for their flight to their forever homes!
The Brave Tide crew and their eager passengers arrived in State College on Friday afternoon and received a warm, enthusiastic welcome! Nittany Greyhounds volunteers helped unload the dogs and help them continue on their journeys to their forever homes!
