Community Matters (Episode #107H)

KQED Life: Tue, Mar 28, 2017 -- 10:00 PM

This episode features shelter dogs that are trained to protect endangered species. We follow the dogs from the day they are rescued to their deployment in Zambia where they are helping prevent the poaching of elephants and rhinos and helping stem the illegal trade of ivory and rhino horns. These once homeless dogs are now doing life-saving conservation work! We also see an inspiring program where junior high school students read to dogs and cats at an animal shelter. This helps socialize the animals and makes them more adoptable and increases the self-esteem and confidence of the kids. And we showcase a high school cross country team that takes shelter dogs for a run as part of their practice. This innovative community program has inspired the entire town and, soon, the entire nation!
