DOGTV Launches “Adoption Show”

Dogs who are hoping to star in the lives of a forever family are literally getting the chance to enjoy 15 minutes of fame thanks to the just-unleashed DOGTV series The Adoption Show, which showcases adoptable canines and pet parenting advice in each 15-minute episode.

Although DOGTV is known as the first and only television channel designed to entertain our tail-wagging chums, the network’s Adoption Show (which premieres June 9th) is aimed at devotees of dogs. ¬†Actress Maggie Lawson, who starred in the hit cable series Psych, steps into her real life role as an animal advocate to host the weekly pup-centric program, which will shine a spotlight on 10 adorable adoptables from rescue shelters across the country, including the San Francisco SPCA, Chicago Canine Rescue, Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, and the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA.

Sharing her comprehension of all things canine, celebrity dog behavior expert Victoria Stilwell (It’s Me or the Dog) will also star in the series, offering tips to new pet parents to help their adopted fur baby settle in to their new surroundings.

“DOGTV subscribers are passionate about their own pets in addition to the wellbeing of all animals. Launching the ‘Adoption Show’ across our network will inspire this dedicated group to help dogs in need, whether they are adopting a dog themselves, or sharing information on adoptable dogs with their friends,” DOGTV co-founder and Chief Content Officer Ron Levi explained. “We are looking forward to rewarding those who open their hearts and homes to a rescue dog from our show by offering special adoption kits to help make the transition smooth for both the pet and the owner.”

Viewers who give one of the adoptable dogs seen on one of the show’s episodes the present of a bright future as a member of their family will receive a DOGTV goodie bag and a special adoption kit filled with $600 in products for pooches.

DOGTV’s Adoption Show will air everywhere the canine-themed network is available, including on Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand, DIRECTV, RCN, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, iOS, Android and DOGTV’s social media channels.
