Animal Planet, home to television’s longest running animal adoption event, Puppy Bowl, premieres cable television’s first ever live weekly animal adoption series, GIVE A DOG A HOME LIVE!, on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 12PM ET/PT,  featuring Best Friends of America (BFAS), hosted by Puppy Bowl referee and adoption advocate Dan Schachner.

GIVE A DOG A HOME LIVE! is dedicated to sharing the stories of animals available for adoption live from BFAS adoption Centers in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, and animal shelters across the country. The series will also include tips on numerous topics, including how to care for your new friend once you bring them home, in addition to surprise in-studio experts and fuzzy faced guests who will join Schachner live each week. 

During each episode, fans are encouraged to talk about the available animals on Twitter, by using the hashtag #GiveADogAHome. And some tweets may appear onscreen during the live show!
