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.
"Through the Shelter Me television series, we hope to show the remarkable pets that are available in shelters across America – from loving family pets to animals that literally transform the lives of people," says producer and director Steven Latham . "Shelter Me hopes to raise the profile and visibility of these incredible animals, inspiring the public to adopt shelter pets and to visit their local shelters to become more involved."
Shelter Me is generously sponsored by Halo, Purely for Pets, the all-natural pet food company co-owned by Ellen DeGeneres , and PetSafe, an industry leader in pet lifestyle products. Latham sought sponsors that are dedicated to helping pets in need. In partnership with Freekibble.com, Halo donates more than 1.5 million meals annually to shelter pets, and the Halo Pet Foundation provides grants to shelters across the U.S. Petsafe gives back to the community by sponsoring dog parks, rescue missions, adoption facilities and more. "Our sponsors' participation is critical to the ongoing success of this mission," says Latham. "We needed partners whose vision for shelter pets aligned with ours."
