“I have long been an advocate for animal adoption and know first-hand the immense joy a shelter animal brings to our lives,” said executive producer and co-host Hilary Swank. “Yet, every year more than four million animals are euthanized because of overcrowding in shelters. We are so fortunate to have an animal advocate in the FOX network that not only sees the need for more awareness surrounding this issue, but is willing to set aside a two-hour block for this important cause. This partnership will change the path of a soul for thousands of animals looking for their forever home.”
“We’ve seen the entertainment industry come together for so many worthwhile causes benefiting people, now it’s time for them to rally for man’s best friend. It warms my heart that so many animal loving celebrities are stepping up in support of all the beautiful souls that need us to be their voice,” said executive producer Michael Levitt. “This is our big opportunity to change the misperception of shelter animals and show the world that rescuing a dog is always the way to go.”
