Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Just about everybody likes animals and doesn't like to see animals who are sick, injured or abused. So Animal Rescue, a weekly series -- aimed at children and families -- that showcases spectacular rescues of animals, should be very popular. Because people don't like to see an animal's situation get so bad that it requires rescue, the program tries to avoid those situations by instructing children on the proper care of animals, as well as giving safety tips on caring for all types of creatures.
