America's adoptable pets are getting a chance to win your heart on live TV.

Animal Planet premiered "Give A Dog A Home Live" Tuesday. The hour-long show will air Tuesdays and Thursdays, featuring animals who are looking for a good home.

The show, which is hosted by "Puppy Bowl" referee Dan Schachner, is a partnership with Best Friends Animal Society. In addition to the show, adoptable dogs and cats are featured on the channel's Facebook page.

The pets on the show are at Best Friends adoption centers in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York City and Salt Lake City, plus other shelters around the United States.
