A new half-hour docuseries telling stories about dogs, and the people who rescue them, premiered on TV stations in 200 markets on Saturday, Oct. 17.
To the Rescue follows stories that intertwine the work of animal rescue organizations, municipal animal shelters, transporters, behaviorists and foster families to reveal what it really takes to help the most at-risk dogs find their forever families.
Hosted by veteran TV producer-personality Tommy Habeeb, best known to television audiences as the original host of the long-running syndicated series Cheaters, To the Rescue is a passion project for Habeeb and has taken over two years to develop, produce and distribute.
“Thousands of people are working tirelessly every day to save dogs who need their help,” said Habeeb, “and our show lifts the veil on the world of dog rescue and the incredible work of these everyday heroes. It takes a team to save a dog’s life. So, while To the Rescue is ultimately a story about dogs, it’s also about all the amazing people who go to great lengths to rescue them,”
NOTE: To the Rescue is partnering with Cathy Bissell’s Bissell Pet Foundation to support the dog rescue community and help reduce the overcrowded kill shelters throughout the U.S.
One of their joint fundraising projects is to have viewers virtually foster one of the puppies found abandoned and shown during the series.
In advance of the premier episode, Tommy Habeeb and Steel appeared on KPLR, Nexstar’s CW affiliate in St. Louis, to promote To the Rescue.
