Have you ever wondered what it takes to place a stray dog or cat in a permanent home? Meet the everyday heroes of animal rescue and foster who use hard work, dedication, and out-of-the-box ideas to give homeless dogs, cats, and other pets a second chance. We share inspirational stories from leaders, volunteers, and experts in animal and pet rescue, health, training, and behavior. Hear also from people who go above and beyond to be a hero - a hotel that fosters dogs in their lobby, and a man who has driven his truck a million miles to save over 55,000 dogs. These are just some of the people who sacrifice their time - visiting their local dog and cat shelter, fostering animals of all kinds, and advocating for pet safety and preventing cruelty - to make dog, cat, and other animal rescue a reality.
