Washington state’s very own Amanda Giese of Panda Paws Rescue is returning to Animal Planet for an all-new second season of AMANDA TO THE RESCUE which will feature more unforgettable rescue stories along with a lot of heart and laughter. With her family—daughter, Jade, son, Beast, and her pack of adorable pups, Garnett, Bulldog, and Groot, Amanda continues the mission of her at-home rescue to give special needs and major medical dogs and cats a second chance at life and find them the forever homes they deserve. AMANDA TO THE RESCUE Season Two premieres Saturday, October 5 at 10PM ET/PT

Amanda stole audiences’ hearts last season with her determined optimism and unwavering support for all dogs and puppies in need, especially those with major medical needs. In the new season premiering this fall, Amanda takes in more “differently-abled” dogs, puppies, and even some cats, rescuing an astounding 35 animals in this season alone – making for a total over 100 rescues for both seasons!

Animal Planet audiences will also see Amanda team up with Tia Torres of PIT BULLS & PAROLEES. In a special two-hour story which spans both series, Amanda travels to New Orleans, where she and Tia join forces to help “Bean,” a shy dog who suffered a traumatic leg injury after being shot. Throughout the season we’ll also meet “Mai Tai’” and “Sweet Roll,” a deaf mother-daughter pup duo; “Super Scootie,” a pint-sized, 10-year-old Pomeranian born with malformed front legs and feet and suffering from traumatic dental disease after living alone in a home for an entire year; and “Chickpea,” a sweet, tiny French Bulldog that needs both of her back legs amputated.

 Viewers can also get more action with Amanda in Amanda to the Rescue: Where are they Now?,  which will launch on Facebook, where Amanda relives some of the most memorable dogs and adoptions from season one, while providing updates on how they’re doing today in their forever homes.

AMANDA TO THE RESCUE is produced for Animal Planet by Indigo Films where David M. Frank and Christopher Voos serve as Executive Producers. For Animal Planet, Keith Hoffman is Executive Producer and Sarah Russell is Supervising Producer.
