SHELTER ME, hosted by Katherine Heigl, celebrates the human-animal bond with positive stories about shelter pets
Every year, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America's shelters.
SHELTER ME focuses on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.
The first episode shows the journey of two stray dogs, from the day they are picked up on the streets and brought to the shelter until the day they become a beloved family pet. We go inside a women's prison, where inmates train shelter dogs to become service animals for people with disabilities. We also see how shelter pets are helping our returning war veterans cope with PTSD.
SHELTER ME is about redemption, hope, helping others and making a difference.
