Free screening of Shelter Me: Second Chances

WHYY and the Pennsylvania SPCA, present the third episode of the inspiring PBS series Shelter Me which celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories. Following the screening will be a panel discussion with Sarah Speed, Pennsylvania State Director with HSUS, Marisa Scully, Certified Professional Dog Trainer and Behavior Specialist and Dr. JoEllen Bruinooge, DMV Veterinarian Pennsylvania SPCA and moderated by WHYY reporter Elizabeth Fiedler. This event is FREE and open to the public but registration is required.

In this episode, we go inside a juvenile detention facility where teenage inmates learn how to train shelter dogs.  The results bring a message of hope and provide life-long lessons.

A poet delivers an emotional performance about the impact shelter pets can have on our lives.

And a professional photographer takes a group of students into a shelter and shows how taking great pictures can get more pets adopted.

Shelter Me is about helping others and making a difference.  We focus on the success stories to bring more people into the shelters to give these incredible animals a second chance.
