Shelter Me Launches National PBS Series Highlighting The Extraordinary Lives And Benefits Of Adopting Shelter Pets

LOS ANGELES, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- They become beloved household pets, extraordinary search-and-rescue dogs and agents of healing and strength. These stories and more are highlighted in the PBS series Shelter Me, a new project that takes an inside look at the many benefits of adopting animals from the nation's overwhelmingly burdened shelter system.

Episode two, " Shelter Me: Let's Go Home ," will launch in Los Angeles and is hosted by Emmy Award-winning actress and shelter animal advocate Jane Lynch. This episode explores the inspiring stories of shelter dogs transformed into life saving search-and-rescue dogs; an innovative spay and neuter program in the Watts section of Los Angeles, a cat adoption from a shelter and the incredible healing power of shelter dogs that visit patients at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.  

This episode premieres in L.A. on April 9 and throughout the nation on local PBS stations. Upcoming airdates include New York, Boston, Miami, Chicago, Detroit, Sacramento, San Francisco, Denver and San Diego. A complete list of airdates is available at:

Episode one of "Shelter Me," hosted by Katherine Heigl, is available on Netflix and iTunes.

Shelter Me was created to shed light on the many benefits of adopting animals out of the nation's overwhelmed and under visited animal shelters.  The current state of the American animal shelter system is dire; an estimated 6 to 8 million animals enter the nation's shelters annually and, of that number, 3 to 4 million will be euthanized. Shelter Me focuses on the success stories to bring more people into local shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.
