You don't have have to have a plane to help transport dogs. There are dog transport networks all over the country that might need help with a just a 2-hour leg in a car transport.

Flying dogs to safety
Jeff Bennett is no ordinary pilot. A lifetime dog-lover, he is now flying them to safety. Bennett is a volunteer for Pilots N Paws, an organization that connects pilots around the country with overcrowded shelters in need of help transporting dogs to places with extra space. It costs him a few hundred dollars per trip, but that is a small price to pay for saving the lives of these pups. Bennett has saved 86 dogs so far and has no plans to ground his plane anytime soon.
