WHAT: Actor, Director and musician Kevin Costner has joined forces with The Orange Dog Founder Jan Folk as she works to save the lives of homeless but loveable mutts from California


EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/29/10 -- WHAT: Actor, Director and musician Kevin Costner has joined forces with The Orange Dog Founder Jan Folk as she works to save the lives of homeless but loveable mutts from California.

On Friday July 30th, Kevin Costner, accompanied by his loyal pup Daisy, will be flying from Aspen, Colorado to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada aboard the private "dog rescue" jet, in support of the dog rescue efforts of The Orange Dog.

Pets are among the most helpless victims of the current economic downturn. It's a sad fact that hit solidly home with Folk when she learned of thousands of homeless dogs euthanized every year in California. The on-going tragedy was too much to ignore.

A life-long dog-lover herself, Jan took the situation personally and started looking for a hands-on-way to help. She reasoned that if she could come up with a clever way to save these poor animals, others might be inspired to do the same.

She took stock of the resources around her and tried to imagine a way to combine them to make a difference. As a frequent traveler with access to a private jet, she reasoned that when Long-Beach based Global Exec Aviation wasn't flying celebrities (like Costner, in a 2008 flight to Edmonton) they could carry Shitzus. Global Exec Aviation President, Ramon Manriquez agreed and the first doomed dogs suddenly found themselves reprieved to wood-paneled luxury at 45,000 feet.

A native of California and dog lover himself, Kevin is proud to fly aboard the jet known for its lifesaving missions.

WHEN & WHERE: The media is invited to participate a photo and interview opportunity on Friday July 30th at the following location and times:

Departure from Aspen, Colorado - Friday July 30th at 10:00 AM (local time) at Atlantic Aviation Services, 69 E. Airport Road, Aspen.

Arrival in Edmonton, Alberta - Friday July 30th at 12:00 Noon (local time) at the Executive Flight Centre located north of the Edmonton International Airport at 1020-8th Ave.

ABOUT THE ORANGE DOG:

The Orange Dog is the brainchild of Edmonton businesswoman and philanthropist, Jan Folk. As a friend and generous donor to numerous animal welfare charities, Jan leapt at the idea of a business purpose built to help animals in need.

The Orange Dog web store (www.orangedog.ca) features a selection of high quality, fun, sustainably made products for dogs and their owners - the profits from which fund the Freedom Flight Program.
