Air Force cadet helps save dog and her 6 puppies from euthanasia

Last week the lives of six puppies and their mom hung in the balance at a shelter in Plano, Texas. They needed to be rescued before Sunday or they would all be euthanized. There was hope for them since a rescue group in Colorado had arranged for homes for all of them. The problem was getting them to Colorado from Texas.

That's when Cadet Second Class Adam McMurray came into the picture. He had heard about the situation when the Aspen Flying Club of which he is a member sent out an email to all the different pilots requesting for a volunteer to help out. When McMurray heard about the situation he didn’t hesitate to help.

On Sunday, McMurray, accompanied by his dad, spent the day flying over 1,200 miles to bring all seven dogs to safety. McMurray even paid for the flight himself, which cost him around $1,000. Once he arrived at the airport in Colorado he was met by the Colorado Aussie Rescue who took the puppies and their mother to their new homes.

McMurray summed up his actions to help with this, “I’ve always had an urge, or a calling to help as much as I can. This is kind of like an ode to my former dog. I had my dog from kindergarten to my senior year in high school, and haven’t had a dog since. I saw it and I just felt I really needed to take the charge on it. It’s just really good to know that my dad and I were able to get out there and help make a difference for these fellas."

McMurray added that he was just happy to help the animals in need. He said the mother and her puppies were excellent passengers and hardly made a sound the whole plane ride.

    I would like to thank Cadet McMurray and his Dad for taking these dogs to Colorado at his own expense. Not to many people would do what that. God Bless YOu
