SHELTER ME:
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.

 

NATURE
A Sloth Named Velcro

 

Filmed in Panama, Costa Rica and Colombia, this is a story of friendship between a journalist and the sloth she named Velcro and a network of people working to learn more about sloths in order to protect them. Once largely ignored, sloths have become a hot topic of scientific researchers. New studies show that they’re not so “sloth-like” after all: despite their reputation, sloths in fact sleep only about as much as humans do and are much more active in the wild than they are in captivity. Other studies have shown sloths are not as solitary as we thought, that they have social structures and that males even keep small harems of females. New research into the gait of sloths has revealed another surprise. X-ray images and photographic analysis show that sloths actually move just like primates, only upside-down.

Will Philanthropy Narrow the Gap Between the Haves and Have Nots?
