ANIMAL PLANET ASKS VIEWERS TO GIVE THANKS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WITH "YOU WATCH. WE GIVE." R.O.A.R. INITIATIVE

(New York, NY) - As part of Animal Planet's on-going commitment to make a positive impact in the animal world, the network is asking viewers to tune in to help drive donations up to $50,000 to Villalobos Rescue Center, a 501c3 nonprofit organization featured in the series PIT BULLS & PAROLEES. The promotional marketing campaign called "You Watch. We Give." is part of the network's non-profit initiative Reach Out. Act. Respond. (R.O.A.R). Based on the number of viewers who watch Animal Planet on Saturday, November 26, at 10 pm ET/PT for an all-new episode of PIT BULLS & PAROLEES, funds will be donated to give thanks to Tia Torres for her tireless dedication to the pit bull breed.

In the high-drama episode, Tia decides it's time to hire new parolees to handle the heavy workload at Villalobos. For the new guys, this is the opportunity of a lifetime, but one parolee may blow it before day one is over. Then, just as one of Tia's most beloved dogs is to be adopted, the team gets shocking news about his health.

Last year, the "You Watch. We Give" campaign yielded a donation of $50,000 and garnered more than one million unique P2+ viewers to become the series' most-watched episode ever. The 2010 donations paid for half of Villalobos' yearly vet bill for the 150 dogs Tia houses. The funds allowed her to keep dogs, like "Egypt," who needed hip surgery, and "Sheriff," who needed intestinal surgery, healthy and ready for adoption.

This past fall R.O.A.R launched an eight-week matching campaign hosted by GlobalGiving, an online marketplace of charities. Through the campaign, consumer donations to R.O.A.R's eight partner charities were matched dollar for dollar from proceeds of Animal Planet licensed products. The campaign was a success, and consumer donations exceeded the program's $90,000 goal, which, when matched, made a total of $180,000, contributed across the eight-partner organizations.

R.O.A.R. is Animal Planet's national campaign that leads the way in taking action and being a voice for animals. To learn more about Villalobos and all of the R.O.A.R partners please visit: http://animal.discovery.com/roar/.
