New Channel 9 show giving dogs a second chance at love on TAKE ME HOME


See why – and how – man’s best friend can make a house a better home when Take Me Homean inspiring program about the joy of rescue dogs, premieres on Friday, May 6 at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9Now.

Our centuries-old love of dogs has never been stronger, and it shines through in this six-part documentary series that follows the work of Sue HedleyMedal of the Order of Australia recipient and founder of animal rescue organization SAFE Inc (Saving Animals From Euthanasia).

Working together with rangers in the vast Pilbara region, volunteers and local foster carers, SAFE Inc saves the lives of dogs and other pets that are lost and forgotten, unloved and unwanted, and often dumped by callous owners.

Thanks to their tireless mission, abandoned or surrendered dogs are given a new lease on life by being matched with loving new adoptive families. In return, the dogs repay them with the faithful service common to all canine breeds: as protectors, helpers, life savers, and devoted companions.

Sue Hedley says this feelgood family series will open a window into a world that most viewers haven’t experienced before and inspire people to join in the SAFE Inc team’s animal rescue work.

“I started SAFE Inc as I couldn’t stand to see dogs locked up in cages or needlessly put down,” Sue said. “I thought kids go into foster care, so why not dogs and cats?

“Together with our amazing volunteers, and the Pilbara rangers who dedicate their working life to ensuring positive outcomes, SAFE Inc is all about regular people opening their hearts and homes to care for homeless animals and provide short-term care until a permanent home is found .”

In the premiere episode, Oak the puppy is relinquished to SAFE Inc by his owner Gavin. A little too enthusiastic for his size, he is moved from one foster home to another while Sue and her team work hard to try and find him the right place to call home.

Meanwhile, Harper the “piglet-looking dog” is taken in by ranger Renae after being found on the side of the road, and we meet Missy, a scruffy little terrier who is given a makeover and taken to her new foster family while SAFE Inc start their search for an adopter.

Watch what it takes to get these animals – the lucky ones – from the back streets to the back yards. And see why every dog ​​that needs a home deserves to find a home that needs a dog.

Take Me Home is produced by Projucer for the 9Network.
