Another Successful Momentum Dog Rescue Paw-peration

Feb 22, 2022 | Group Charter

On February 20, 2022 Momentum Solutions operated a charter flight to transport approximately 200 rescue dogs from an Animal Sanctuary in Barbados to Toronto Canada.

Over the course of the pandemic Momentum has been committed to supporting many Caribbean and Canadian rescue group partnerships in transporting thousands of island dogs in need to Canada, many of whom would otherwise have been euthanized because the islands from which they came were overrun with abandoned dogs and unable to support or re-home them locally.

All dogs that travel on Momentum rescue flights (including our newest furry Canadians that travelled Sunday), come to Canada with the commitment that they will never be homeless or in a shelter ever again. Before joining the manifest to travel to Canada, all dogs are secured vetted placements in foster or foster-to-adopt homes, through local Canada based dog rescue groups that are there to support and re-home the dogs if a particular placement does not work out.  All of these dogs have such lovely sweet temperaments…the crew and staff wanted to take them home!

Momentum had a team of operations staff and volunteers waiting at the GTA Dnata Toronto Pearson warehouse to coordinate clearance with Canada Customs and to oversee getting all our new arrivals safely in the arms of their waiting Canadian rescue groups. It was a long day for them, but we have been flooded in the nearly 48 hours since with pictures of them settling into their new homes with their foster families…seeing snow and playing with toys for the first time, sleeping on soft cushy beds, and getting lots of treats, cuddles and love.

We are beyond grateful to our many amazing partners for their support in the execution of this special mission:

Chrono Aviation – you stepped up to help and treated these pups like VIPs. Thank you for all your hard work to make this happen.

HiFly – thank you for jumping in to help with logistics – we couldn’t have done this without you.

GTA dnata – you have been longtime supporters and partners in this important work over the last two years, thank you for the long hours and special hands-on help in handling us with our warehouse intakes from start to finish. You always show our team and our special charges such warmth and empathy.

EOPR, SWM and their team of volunteers – it has been a pleasure working with you in securing safe homes for each and every one of these dogs. Your commitment to rescue work and doing things the right way is inspiring.

A special note to Mark and his staff at MJet in Barbados – your tireless dedication to Ocean Acres and these dogs is a beautiful thing. We are very proud to work alongside you.

This project has taken months to come together and was truly a labour of love for all involved. The commitment of so many to animal welfare and this important work has saved hundreds of dogs and will enrich the lives of all the families here in Canada who will adopt them and receive the love and joy they bring into their homes.
