There are millions of dogs that are sent to animal shelters across the country. Many of them never make it out as they are euthanized before ever getting a chance of a good life. PetSmart Charities is all about pet adoption and according to E! News on Feb.24, they are teaming up with actor Josh Duhamel and his production company, Dakotakid Media, to help these pets find their forever home.

This transport program called PetSmart Charities' Rescue Waggin is known to grab dogs from shelters that are overpopulated to places where they are more likely to get adopted. Duhamel, who is known for his love of dogs, is teaming up with the program to bring a new webseries called “Rescue Waggin: Tales From the Road.”

This heartwarming documentary series follows these dogs on their journey that brings them from the shelter to the arms of their loving families. The actor is delighted to be involved in this special project as an active advocate for pet adoption.

"I just thought it's such a great way to tell stories about these dogs are in these shelters where they'd otherwise be put down, suddenly get scooped up by this Rescue Waggin and get taken to a shelter where they can find a family that's really looking to adopt," he dished to E!. "It's a really, really cute series, really fun series about these dogs' journeys from death's doorsteps, literally, to a loving family."

Bret Michaels, Adam Shankman and Kristen Bell will also join in on the fun to help spread the word. These three celebrities are pet adoption advocates as well.

Look for the eight-episode webseries which premieres on March 3. It will be sure to make your heart melt.

Remember that there are so many dogs and cats that are sitting in shelters right now that need desperate help in finding someone to love them unconditionally. If you are thinking of getting a pet, head to your local animal shelter and take a look around at the sad faces that are just waiting for someone to give them a second chance at happiness.
