New Reality TV show – Dr Lisa to the Rescue

DrLisa1Forget The Bachelor! Bones replace roses when true, life-lasting love finally comes to TV with the launch of Dr Lisa to the Rescue, a riveting new reality show which finds forever homes for rescue dogs. Dr. Lisa Chimes, of Bondi Vet, is on a personal crusade to change Australia’s view of shelter dogs, one pooch at a time. The show debuts Saturday, July 18, 4:30 pm on Channel 9 (learn more here).

Finding the right match for a life-long commitment is a challenge. Dr. Lisa combs the Animal Welfare League in search of the right rescue dog for each pet-yearning family. For each case several dogs are presented, sometimes with hilarious antics, but which lucky pup will they choose? It’s a heart-warming show that has you questioning just whom is rescuing whom.

“Each year over 100,000 homeless dogs find refuge at shelters across Australia,” says Dr. Lisa. “Sadly, many Australians have misconceptions about rescue animals. They may not be aware that shelters regularly retrain and work with the animals to help them become loving lifelong companions.”


Over the course of 10 weeks, Dr. Lisa must find and fit dogs to lifestyles ranging from a search for a companion to horses and chickens on a farm, to a single career woman in a tiny apartment; from a grieving couple looking to replace a beloved pet, to a large family excited to own a dog for the very first time. It’s a must-match of personalities and places, people and pets. Along the way, there are tips and guidance on pet care and proper set-up to ensure a happy home.

“All these rescue dogs have stories, but their stories are not over,” adds Dr. Lisa. “My goal is to ensure their stop in the shelter is just the beginning of the next chapter for them, with a very long and happy ending. They have so much love to give, and the reality is, it’s their new owners who are the lucky ones.”

DrLisa3All manner of breeds, tiny to large, some shy,others boisterous and brimming with personality, the rescue dogs have one thing in common- they’re looking for love. “You won’t get a more grateful, loving pooch than a pound dog,” she says. “These dogs know they’ve been given a second chance at life and they are so happy. They couldn’t love their owners more for giving them a home.”

Dr Lisa to the Rescue is sponsored by Nestle PURINA Petcare, who has partnered with Animal Welfare League Australia to provide the dogs and cats at AWLA affiliated shelters looking for new homes, with the best nutritional care possible and to promote the adoption of rescue pets in Australia.
