Hearts & Paws
This inspiring series celebrates the human-animal bond by telling positive stories. Each story shows how people’s lives are improved when shelter pets are given a second chance.
Host Kristen Bell (Frozen) introduces new stories, including one features award-winning artist Patrick McDonnell, creator of the Mutts comic strip. Patrick spent several days at the New York City animal shelter and turned his experience into a week’s worth of comics called “Shelter Stories.” We also follow the journey of a pet from the day she is surrendered to a shelter until the day she is adopted. Another segment features the first cat cafe in the country. Cat Town Cafe has partnered with the Oakland Animal Shelter to provide an innovative way to showcase cats and boost adoptions in their community.
