 In celebration of the ASPCA’s (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) 150th anniversary, the ASPCA and Animal Planet will host an exclusive premiere screening of “Second Chance Dogs” taking viewers behind the scenes of its Behavioral Rehabilitation Center where dogs rescued from cruel situations begin a remarkable journey from rescue to rehabilitation and ultimately, adoption.

 A discussion panel moderated by NBC News’ Tamron Hall will follow the screening featuring Kristen Collins, Senior Director of ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Behavior Rehabilitation; Erin Wanner, Vice President of Animal Planet Production; ASPCA President and CEO Matt Bershadker; and filmmaker Kenn Bell.

 Rescued from hoarding cases, puppy mills and other atrocities, animals at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center have lived most of their lives in constant fear and neglect, resulting in extreme distrust of humans and at times complete catatonia. These conditions make them unsuitable for adoption, which puts their lives at grave risk. ASPCA behavior experts at the New Jersey-based center accepts these dogs from across the country to give them second chances at a lives they deserve. Each dog profiled in the documentary overcomes unique challenges to become comfortable being handled by people, walking with a leash, engaging in play and exhibiting social behavior. In the film, experts from the animal welfare community share insight on the perilous obstacles animal victims of cruelty face, as well as the innovative tactics and tools that give them a second chance.

“Second Chance Dogs” will debut on Animal Planet on Saturday, April 16, at 9 AM ET/PT.
