Hearts & Paws (Episode #106H)

KQED 9: Wed, May 25, 2016 -- 8:00 PM

Hosted by Kristen Bell, this episodd features award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell, creator of the MUTTS comic strip. Patrick spent several days at the New York City animal shelter and turned his experience into a week's worth of MUTTS comics called "Shelter Stories."
We also follow the journey of a pet from the day she is surrendered to a shelter until the day she is adopted. This hopeful story is told by renowned animators Paul and Sandra Fierlinger and set to the song, "Staring Over Again."
The other segment features the first cat cafe in the country. Cat Town Cafe has partnered with the Oakland Animal Shelter to provide an innovative way to showcase cats and boost adoptions in their community.
