Pigs Really Can Fly! With Pet Airways

Bosley, the Pot-Bellied Pig, Takes to the Sky

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Pet Airways, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of The PAWS Pet Company, Inc. (OTCQB: PAWS) (PINKSHEETS: PAWS) answered the age-old question, "Can Pigs Fly?" with a resounding YES! Bosley, a pot-bellied pig rescued by the Tri County Humane Society of Boca Raton, Florida, will become the first of his species to fly on a Pet Airways flight, travelling from Florida to New York.

Bosley will join the Pet Airways flight on September 1st. After receiving a rousing welcome from New Yorkers, Bosley will then travel to a farm in the Hamptons, where he will begin a new life of leisure among new pig friends.

His journey is possible thanks to Pet Airways, the only airline that flies pets in the main cabin of the plane, not in cargo. The airline has flown over 7,000 dogs and cats since launching in 2009. Other Pawsengers have included birds, rats, and even a hermit crab -- but Bosley will be the first pig to fly the pet-friendly skies.
