20 rescued dogs arrive in NJ by private jet

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - Twenty dogs rescued from high-kill shelters in Georgia and South Carolina arrived in New Jersey by means usually reserved for corporate titans.

They were flown by private jet to Morristown Municipal Airport on Sunday.

Rich Errico of Home For Good Dog Rescue usually drives a van more than 12 hours to bring the dogs back to foster families and permanent homes. But the owner of a private airport terminal offered to fly them back in style.

Dirk van der Sterre tells the Daily Record of Parsippany ( ) he's done 10 transports and brought up 120 dogs in a little under two years.

Errico says the van can be stressful for the dogs, but the canines hardly know they've traveled on the plane.
