Shelter Me: An Inspiring Series Celebrating Shelter Pets

Every year, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America’s shelters.

“Shelter Me” is an inspiring series that celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories.

“Shelter Me” focuses on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.

With stories ranging from adopted shelter dogs now volunteering at local hospitals to a family choosing a new feline friend to join their lives, “Shelter Me” emphasizes all of the positive work these animals contribute to the world.   

We also tell an amazing story about firefighters who train shelter dogs for search-and-rescue. These teams have been to the World Trade Center and helped look for survivors in the aftermath of many catastrophic disasters. Oftentimes these search dogs will be the first on the scene to save you.

SHELTER ME is about hope, helping others and making a difference.

Shelter Me premieres on WLRN Channel 17 on Thursday, April 25th at 9pm-11pm
