CHICAGO - It was a trip of a lifetime for more than 100 shelter pets!
The animals touched down in DuPage County over the weekend.
A total of 116 cats and dogs were onboard and came to Chicago from overcrowded shelters in Puerto Rico and Florida — areas devastated by recent hurricanes.
The animals are headed to PAWS Chicago and the SPCA of Southwest Michigan.
The nonprofit "Wings of Rescue" is chartering several flights this week — transporting about 900 pets in all.
The flight this weekend was paid for by Bissell Pet Foundation and Petsmart Charities.
