TORONTO (April 23, 2019) – Gusto announced today the return of hit original docu-series DOG TALES RESCUE for a second season, airing Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET beginning May 7.

Season 2 of DOG TALES RESCUE continues to follow the action-packed day-to-day operation of Dog Tales, located just outside of Toronto, Ont. Rob Scheinberg, Danielle Eden-Scheinberg, and their dedicated team stop at nothing to rescue animals and give them a wonderful life safe from harm. From over-crowded shelters in Israel to emergency evacuations in North Carolina, the team goes the distance to find, save, and provide dogs in need with a second chance. Whether it’s a coordinated network of volunteers rescuing paralyzed dogs from Cairo, an international rescue mission, or a 30-hour road trip across Canada, the team always find a way to bring animals that need help to Dog Tales.

Season 2 also sees the farm expanding, as Ilana and her team of horse handlers not only look after 75 horses, but also welcome and care for chickens, pigs, and sheep.
