We feature country music icon Emmylou Harris and the incredible work she's doing to help homeless pets and disadvantaged youth in Nashville and another story about police departments that get their K9s from animal shelters. Each year 6-8 million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the United States. Half of them will be euthanized. This situation can be improved if communities get more involved with their local shelters. Shelter Me believes that change comes from inspiration, not desperation. By focusing on positive stories, we are addressing misconceptions about shelter pets and helping get more adopted into loving homes. We will be supporting the broadcasts with a comprehensive media and social media campaign, including outreach by local shelters, rescues and national animal welfare organizations. Shelter Me does not focus on the doom-and-gloom. We tell upbeat stories that will lift viewers' spirits and fill them with hope.
