“Shelter Me: Hearts & Paws” is hosted by Kristen Bell and features award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell, creator of the popular MUTTS comic strip. With a pen and sketch pad, Patrick gets a close look inside Animal Care Centers of New York City (ACC) to find inspiring stories to share with his readers. We also see a story about a dog that finds a new life after being given up at a shelter. And we visit Cat Town Café, the first cat café in the country, which has partnered with Oakland Animal Services to provide a fun and innovative way to meet and adopt shelter cats.
The Shelter Me series tells uplifting stories about shelter pets and the people who help them. It is presented by the Petco Foundation and is produced by Steven Latham Productions.
