Pilot Outfitters Shop Staff Also Cares About Pets

(Continued from home page)

Besides flight, owner Judi Barker and store manager Vanessa Gibson have another interest: helping animals. Over the years, stray cats have been showing up one by one at Santa Monica Air Center, claiming it as their home. They're cared for by employees at the hangar, who try to find forever homes for the critters whenever possible.

One cat, in particular, left her mark on the Barker Hangar family. Tiger Kitty, a feral but sweet feline, was adopted as the office pet 17 years ago. "She added joy and life to our space," said Vanessa. Tiger Kitty, unfortunately, passed away last month, but her legacy lives on. For all of August, shop visitors can receive 15% off gifts and dog supplies by mentioning "Tiger Kitty."

Additionally, each $1 donation made to FixNation at Pilot Outfitters from August 1st – August 31st towards our Opportunity Drawing will enter you to win one (1) pair of regular season tickets to a Lakers and Dodgers game (Prize value $400). Funds raised will be donated to the FixNation non-profit, with thanks to Whiskers & Wings and Dr. Gary Adams of Pet Depot. One randomly chosen winner will be picked on August 31, 2017 at 6 p.m. (Winner need not be present to win).
