For The Love Of Dogs With Alison Hammond | Preview (ITV1)

Alison Hammond is preparing to dish out the dog treats and set tails wagging as she steps into her latest role as the new presenter of the award-winning ITV series, For The Love of Dogs.

In this brand new six-part series, Alison heads to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to help the animals in their care look for a new place to live, following the sad passing of much-loved presenter Paul O’Grady last spring.

With more abandoned and stray dogs in need of care than ever, Alison tells the stories of some of the latest arrivals at Battersea before rolling up her sleeves and helping the expert staff and volunteers to take care of the animals and get them ready for their potential new owners.

In the first episode, Alison meets a tiny three-week old pup who was thrown away in a bin, a boisterous terrier cross who needs to put his energy to good use and a spaniel with an eye problem who Alison quickly falls in love with.

As Alison feeds tiny pup Oscar, she says: “This is the best day of my life. Honestly, it takes me back to when I was a mum feeding my baby. How you could ever throw this away?”

Next Alison meets Nelly, a nine-year-old spaniel who was brought to Battersea after her owner fell ill and could no longer take care of her. Alison helps as Nelly has her eye medication before giving her a much-needed cuddle ahead of an impending operation.

Alison then heads out to the paddocks to meet a spaniel-terrier cross who has lots of energy and is hoping to get a job as a sniffer dog.

For The Love Of Dogs returns Tuesday 16th April at 8pm on ITV1.
