Paul has said, "Seeing the dogs at the shelter was heartbreaking. It was horrible to think that there were so many animals being euthanized because they're stuck in a certain area [...] I realized I could help make a difference by going down there, picking them up and taking them to other shelters."
So that's what he does. Paul and his wife Michelle, 46, take off a day once a month to fly to shelters, where he picks up some cats as well as dogs. In order to transport all these animals, he ripped out the seats in his plane and bought a bunch of pet carries instead. He can now transport as many as 23 animals in one trip!
