New Beginnings (Episode #104)

KQED Plus: Tue, May 26, 2015 -- 11:00 PM

Champion is a German Shepherd mix that was found on the streets of Compton. He was so emaciated he could not stand on his own. He was brought to an animal shelter where he regained his strength and was then given the most incredible second chance. Wings of Rescue, a group of volunteer pilots, flew Champion and 104 other shelter dogs from overcrowded shelters to safety in the northwest. People literally ran out on the tarmac to meet the dogs as they arrived (see attached). Champion now lives on a 700 acre ranch - far away from the life he previously lived - a new beginning for him and all the dogs that went on this journey.
Dogs love to play. Aimee Sadler's program is based on this simple concept. She travels around the country teaching shelters how to do play groups with their dogs. Most shelters keep dogs isolated in their kennels. Aimee shows the shelters how to get groups of dogs in a yard to play and learn from each other. The goal is for every dog to get out of their kennel and play in groups every single day. This program is revolutionary and is being featured on television for the first time. These play groups turn shelters into joyful adoption centers and completely change how shelter dogs are perceived and adopted.
