Discovery+ has unveiled details about a new series on a U.S. animal sanctuary and its founder.

B17 Entertainment, The Dodo and Group Nine Studios are collaborating to produce My Pack Life for Discovery+, a series that will premiere on Animal Planet out of this year’s Puppy Bowl on Feb. 13.

My Pack Life follows Lee Asher, who rescues dogs by traveling across the U.S. to promote animal adoption. In his 25-acre Oregon-based sanctuary, The Asher House, Lee has already provided a home for rescue dogs, donkeys, pigs, an alpaca, a goat and a llama.

Asher’s story saw him leave a corporate job to follow his passion of rescuing dogs and promoting animal adoption. Throughout the series, viewers will see Asher welcome animals from all walks of life into his sanctuary.

Rhett Bachner, Brien Meagher, Aliyah Silverstein, Dave Luce, Joanna Zelman, Lily Ladewig and Izzie Lerer are executive producers on the series, with Pat Dempsey acting as supervising producer for Animal Planet.
