Plot Synopsis

As told by the people who lived through harrowing experiences, SAVED shares incredible true stories of animal heroism -- both physical and emotional -- where animals have intervened to save people's lives. From a family's struggle to bring home a puppy that gave their late son the last bit of happiness before he died in Iraq to a man contemplating suicide pulled from a deep depression by a little dachshund, the animals featured in SAVED play a pivotal role in pulling humans through their darkest periods and give them a second chance at life. Other SAVED stories include a Jack Russell terrier that saved a traumatized child in the aftermath of 9/11, as well as a Dalmatian that helped a family cope with the loss of firefighter sons who responded to the attack on the Twin Towers. In addition, episodes of SAVED features a young man who escaped the violence of gang life through a deep love of horses and a veteran whose German shepherd helped him deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. Prior to its official series premiere on Monday, November 14, 2011, Animal Planet showed a special 9/11-themed sneak-peek episode on September 7, 2011 at 9pm ET/PT and a second sneak peek episode on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 11pm ET/PT.
