Dog flight

Puppies fly from California to Edmonton.

The California Canine Cuties Animal Transfer Program has now officially become a regular operation to save dogs’ lives. The program is an Edmonton Humane Society initiative to help put a dent in the puppy and broker industry.

Edmontonian Jan Folk has arranged for the animals to be flown via a private jet Friday afternoon at the Edmonton International Airport.

Friday’s flight will mark the third flight that Folk’s organization, The Orange Dog, has been involved in the program.

“The heart of this program’s success has been largely because of the dedication from loving volunteers on either side of the border,” said Edmonton Humane Society spokesperson, Shawna Randolph. “It is estimated that 18,000 volunteer hours have been committed to saving these small creatures. It’s unbelievable how much love goes into this.”
