Second Chances (Episode #103H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 5, 2014 -- 5:00 AM

This inspiring series celebrates shelter pets with uplifting stories.
"Second Chances" shows how these pets improve people's lives when given the opportunity. The first story is about incarcerated juveniles whose lives are changed by their interaction and connection with shelter dogs. The detention center is adjacent to a public animal shelter. Dogs are paired up with the kids who are then responsible for training and taking care of them 24/7. The dogs are then adopted by people in the community at a ceremony inside the prison. The kids are forever changed. They learn empathy, responsibility and other life skills. Renowned street poet, Steve Connell, performs an original piece about shelters being a place of hello, not a place of goodbye. This moving piece, filmed in an empty shelter, shows a world of possibilities when people get involved with their local shelters. We conclude this powerful episode with a professional photographer teaching volunteers and the public how to take a great picture of a shelter pet. This fun, upbeat segment shows why taking great photos can make all the difference in getting people to visit their local shelter and adopt a new family member. Every year, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America's shelters. Shelter Me focuses on the success stories to show what happens when these incredible animals are given a second chance. Shelter Me is about hope, helping others and making a difference.

Let's Go Home (Episode #102H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Feb 5, 2014 -- 4:00 AM

This episode features stories about shelter pets that went from rescued to rescuer.The first story is about our hero firefighters who use shelter dogs for search-and-rescue. These teams have been to the World Trade Center and helped look for survivors in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Rita, Superstorm Sandy and the Joplin tornadoes. When a disaster strikes and people are buried, these search dogs will be the first on the scene to save you. We follow individuals who have adopted shelter dogs and are now volunteering at a hospital. These once-forgotten dogs are helping people heal by bringing comfort to patients and their families, not to mention joy to doctors and nurses. We also show a dramatic rescue of homeless puppies, an innovative spay/neuter clinic and a family adopting a beautiful cat at an animal shelter.
