The sixth episode of Shelter Me, a PBS series celebrating the human-animal bond, airs this month. We at MUTTS just love this series and are excited to announce that the newest episode, hosted by actress Kristen Bell (Frozen, Veronica Mars), includes a feature segment with our very own Patrick McDonnell!

Patrick McDonnell Shelter Me

Through inspiring and uplifting stories about shelter pets, Shelter Me (supported in part by the Petco Foundation) gives a voice to a range of worthwhile animal organizations. In its five previous episodes, the show has featured an organization that trains search-and-rescue dogs, a mobile spay-and-neuter clinic, a group of volunteer pilots that fly endangered shelter animals to safety — and much more!

The newest episode, titled “Hearts and Paws,” follows MUTTS creator Patrick McDonnell as he visits Animal Care Centers of New York City (ACC). With a pen and sketch pad, Patrick gets a close look inside the largest shelter in New York City to find inspiring stories to share with his readers.

The full episode will be available to view online in mid-November, and we invite you to tune in with us! (We’ll post an update on our Facebook page when it’s up). For now, check out the trailer below, then visit for more information about the show!
