Beth Caffrey with the Central California SPCA introduced us to Adonis, who's looking for a good home in Fresno, and she talked about today's Operation Orange Dog flight that took 114 small breed dogs this morning to Edmonton Canada where they will be placed with loving families.
Adonis is a full grown orange tabby. He has a wonderfully calm disposition. He's available for adoption Saturday morning, February 13 at 8:00 a.m. at the SPCA, 103 S. Hughes in Fresno.
Operation Orange Dog is made possible thanks to Edmonton businesswoman Jan Folk who volunteers for the Edmonton Humane Society.
Folk arranged to have 114 small breed dogs flown in a private jet Friday afternoon at the Edmonton International Airport. This is the third such flight bringing more than 225 dogs to new homes in Canada.
The Edmonton Humane Society says it finds more people are willing to wait for the California dogs because some feel those sold in newspaper or online ads, or in pet stores may come from puppy mills or brokers where they often live in questionable conditions.
