Animal Rescue Live 2019
All this week on Channel 4 in the UK there is a one-hour live programme all about animal adoption and rescue.
Animal Rescue Live Supervet Special is raising awareness for the country’s animal rescue shelters and the pawmazing work that they do. Broadcast at 8pm, Mon-Fri this week (12th - 16th August), the show will encourage viewers to help in every way they can, either by donating, adopting, volunteering or educating the public about animal adoption and what adopting a rescue animal entails.
Each year around 250,000 pets end up in rescue shelters around the UK and centres are constantly in need of more support. Animal Rescue Live is a campaign bringing the nation together to fix the problem; by donating money, volunteering and, for those who can, adopting a rescue animal." - https://animalrescuelive.channel4.com/

This is the second series of Animal Rescue Live and this year the show is based at Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare, East Sussex. The first series in 2017, which we wrote about on this blog, was based at Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter and was also presented by Professor Noel Fitzpatrick (Supervet), Steve Jones, Kate Quilton.
We've been tuning in and loving it. We are also very grateful to the team behind this show because animals need a voice.
We want more TV like this!
It's been great following the hashtag #aimalrescuelive and seeing how the kind-hearted animal-loving people have come together to help this cause by sharing and retweeting, many sharing their own rescue pet stories and pics of their dear rescue pets. Of course Mum had to share a photo of me. I mean, why wouldn't she? Ours is a beautiful story of rescue and we also wanted to mention the wonderful Wood Green, The Animal Charity who made it possible for us to find each other.
Here it is on Mum's Twitter after Monday's episode:
