Amanda Giese eased her troubled childhood by connecting with animals. They were her best friends, her "saving grace," she says. That connection continued into adulthood, leading her to start a nonprofit called Panda Paws Rescue, whose mission is to end homelessness, abuse and neglect of all animals. Alongside Amanda's kids, Jade and Beast, and partner Gary, the family cares for animals -- primarily dogs that others have given up on -- in need and helps them find loving forever homes. Those efforts are featured on hourlong episodes, including a large-scale rescue mission to save the lives of dozens of animals that have major medical or special needs.
