“Shelter Me: New Beginnings,” the fourth episode of the inspiring national PBS series that celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories.
Halo, dedicated to raising awareness about pet adoption, has also proudly sponsored the previous three episodes, each hosted by leading actors and animal advocates, including: Katherine Heigl, Jane Lynch, and Edie Falco.
Hosted by actor and animal advocate Allison Janney, the one-hour emotionally-charged fourth episode focuses on two stories, including an aircraft transport of 120 shelter dogs to loving homes as well as a nationally recognized animal trainer who is implementing a first of its kind doggie play groups in overcrowded city shelters.
The “Shelter Me” series was created by filmmaker Steven Latham, who wants to break down the negative perceptions and stigmas of public animal shelters and help people realize that shelter pets make the best pets.
