Heart-warming stories of pet adoptions, surgeries & the people who do it all "For The Love Of Pets". From vets performing life changing surgeries, to the re-homing team working with tireless devotion and enthusiasm to care for a re-home more than 4,000 companion animals per year. To the considerate staff of the boarding kennels putting the neurotic pets and owners at ease, and the sympathetic team who manage the pet memorial / cremation services, helping families say their final goodbyes.
Peter Jenetsky, Producer, Context Media, says “The inexplicable human – animal bond is something people all around the world share and benefit from. So when the times come for our furry friends to need a helping human hand, it’s reassuring to know there are people and organisations who step up to meet this need. And we feel sure that Channel 5’s audiences will love watching the amazing and devoted animal carers, vets and nurses we feature in 'For the Love of Pets'.”
Damian O’Hara, Senior Acquisitions Manager, Channel 5, comments: "Our audience has a great love for animals and their stories. They will no doubt embrace the wonderful tales of compassion and care in this new series, as we look to the incredible work for the Australian vets and carers.”
