GIVE ME SHELTER combines “Pit Bulls And Paroles” with “From Underdog To Wonderdog” to tell the incredible story of the “no kill” Pet Helpers Rescue Shelter in Charleston, S.C. GIVE ME SHELTER is a show that highlights just how much good people can do, even in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. We follow the staff of pet Helpers each week as they work to save, rehabilitate and “re-home” abandoned pets and injured wildlife. It is entertaining, informative and timely.
