When thinking of animal shelters, the idea that may come immediately to mind is the ability to adopt a pet to bring home. Although animal shelters may provide the opportunity to find the pet that you want for your family, they have a significant role in society that goes beyond the basics of helping pets find good homes. This will be explored in a new segment for the "Leading Edge" series with host Jimmy Johnson.
An animal shelter is a place where pet owners can bring puppies, kittens or stray animals when it is not possible to provide shelter for the pets. Injured animals are given appropriate treatment based on their injuries. Even if the animal is not injured, each animal in the shelter is given a check-up and basic treatment for good health and the prevention of diseases.
Treating animals is only part of the role of a shelter. The animals are also given the appropriate amount of exercise, meals and care during the time that they are in the shelter. As a result, the role of a shelter is to provide appropriate care for animals who may be abandoned, injured or in need of a good home.
The "Leading Edge" show with Jimmy Johnson will discuss the role of animal shelters in detail. Informing the public about the services that are provided and the role of the shelter can help Public Television audiences stay informed about the best solutions for a pet.
