Storyline

SHELTER ME is an entertaining and uplifting film series about shelter pets improving the lives of those who adopt them. Hosted by actress Katherine Heigl, SHELTER ME celebrates the human-animal bond with positive, uplifting stories about shelter pets and their new homes. Every year, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized in America's shelters. SHELTER ME focuses on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.

We go inside a women's prison, where inmates train shelter dogs to become service animals for people with disabilities. We also see the journey of two stray dogs, from the day they are picked up on the streets and brought to the shelter until the day they become a beloved family pet. SHELTER ME is about redemption, hope, helping others and making a difference. "Shelter Me is a must see documentary. It is moving, ... Written by Steven Latham

Wonderful Story How Shelter Dogs Can Save Lives
14 June 2014 | by (Margate Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful story about how shelter dogs lives can be saved by saving the life of a person in need. Its sad that so many wonderful dogs end up in shelters. I know some can't be helped, but so many people get dogs that have no business having a pet. But, it is so uplifting to see how many of these dogs can be trained to give assistance to those with physically issues and even our brave soldiers that come home from war with psychological problems. Its a win win. A person gets the companion they need and a wonderful dog gets a good and loving home. I just loved this documentary from beginning to end. My face hurt from smiling through the whole documentary. Sometimes that smile was joined by some tears of joy. A must watch for any animal lover.
