8.00pm Tuesday May 8 on Ten
In the middle of the night, Chris is called out to a women’s prison to help a mother in trouble. Golden retriever Brielle is giving birth to a huge litter of puppies that are earmarked to become assistance dogs. Assistance Dogs Australia runs several prison programs where inmates raise and train their puppies, but this is the first time inmates have been involved with a birth behind bars. It’s going to be a long night and it looks like hard labour for Brielle!
Then it’s yet another snake causing problems for Chris, with another night call out. A snake has been found in a suburban street with serious injuries and it appears the diamond python has been the victim of a hit run. Watch for Chris’ clever use of sugar to save the day.
Over at SASH a tiny kitten has fallen from the top of a scratching post at home and the kitten’s distraught young owners are in shock. Lisa has to tell them Ariel is so small and vulnerable that she may not have the strength to recover from the freak accident.
