Morgan Spurlock's Pet Project

Americans spend billions of dollars each year on their beloved pets, but there are still approximately 2.7 million healthy and adoptable animals euthanized every year in shelters because they can't find permanent homes. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is exploring that dichotomy in a new episode of his CNN series "Morgan Spurlock Inside Man," airing Sunday, April 27, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. 
In this pet-centric episode, Spurlock volunteers at a Pennsylvania animal shelter, meeting a number of loving, healthy cats and dogs who are awaiting adoption. But the show delves into the more serious issues surrounding pets as well, such as puppy mills, euthanasia, breed stereotyping and animal cruelty. 
If you love pets, you'll want to tune in to this Sunday's episode. And be sure to stick around to the end for a PSA from The Shelter Pet Project, a joint campaign of The Humane Society of the United States, Maddie's Fund and the Ad Council. This PSA -- and Spurlock's message in the episode -- will convince all viewers that adopting from a shelter is the best way to bring a new pet into their families.
