A June day, Jeff Bennett flew his plane from the Florida Keys, to Greenville, Ala. His mission: to save 23 dogs destined for death row.

Jeff  Bennett donates his time, fuel and plane to Pilots N Paws, a South Carolina-based charity that enlists small plane pilots to transport animals from overcrowded shelters that have high euthanasia rates to foster homes, rescue groups and less-crowded shelters that don't kill the animals.

On the Greenville trip, Bennett picked up his 1,000th animal.
