The joy of rescue dogs highlighted in Channel 9’s Take Me Home premier

See why man’s best friend can make a house a better home when Take Me Home, a 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 Hedley, Medal of the Order of Australia recipient and founder of animal rescue organisation 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.

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,” Hedley 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.”

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