“I never used to believe that the dogs knew they were being saved, but over the years I’ve moved many dogs that have been completely shut down when we load them on the aircraft only to see them do the “happy dance” for the receiving rescue or adopter,” Bennett told Bored Panda. “The behavioral change can be breathtaking. Over time I have come to recognize that they just might know they are being rescued.”

Besides cats and dogs, Bennett has also flown many other animals ranging from pythons to pigs and rabbits. “The joy that I get from transporting these animals is immeasurable,” he added.
