ShelterMe, Partners for Life

ShelterMe, Partners for Life

Just in time for National Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month, the Petco Foundation is proud to present ShelterMe, Partners for Life, which airs on PBS throughout October.

ShelterMe celebrates pets and the joy they bring into our lives by telling uplifting stories about how we can all make a difference by getting involved in our communities and shelters to get more pets adopted.

The episode, titled Partners for Life, is hosted by Emmy award winning actor Jon Hamm and features country music icon Emmylou Harris and the incredible work she’s doing to help at-risk youth and homeless pets through her organization, Bonaparte’s Retreat, and in partnership with Crossroads Campus in Nashville, Tenn.

There’s also a moving segment about the Worcester County sheriff’s department in central Massachusetts that recruits shelter dogs for their prestigious K9 units. This segment not only highlights the lifesaving potential of shelter dogs, but is also a wonderful tie-in to our Helping Heroes campaign, in stores this month.

Be sure to tell your teams and customers about ShelterMe, airing throughout October on PBS! Check your local listings at ShelterMe.TV.
