Every day throughout the month, beginning Monday, June 1, Hallmark Channel’s Emmy-Nominated daytime lifestyle program "Home & Family" (Monday-Friday, 10a – 12p ET/PT, 11C) will feature special segments hosted by pet rescue advocate, Suzanne Browning, that will highlight a different cat or kitten from Best Friends’ Pet Adoption & Spay/Neuter Center in Mission Hills. Happy the Cat, a rescue himself and official feline ambassador to Hallmark Channel’s Pet Project, will be the face of the month-long event and will make a special appearance on "Home & Family."

Pet Project          “We are honored that Best Friends Animal Society has agreed to partner with Hallmark Channel’s Pet Project around Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month and feel that Home & Family is an ideal national platform to educate the public about the importance and rewards of adoption,” said Michelle Vicary, EVP, programming & network publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “The majority of the nearly 4 million perfectly healthy and loveable pets that are needlessly euthanized each year are cats and kittens and it is our hope that this campaign will make a difference by mobilizing people to visit their local shelters and give these wonderful animals the forever homes they so deserve.”
