New to ITV Daytime, Auf Wiedersehen My Pet will see pet owners who for genuine personal reasons have to make the tough decision to give up their much-loved animals. The current owners may be moving abroad or perhaps for medical reasons can no longer give their animal the attention it needs. They will be matched with a trio of potential new owners, all desperate to offer the pet a loving new home.
 
The 20-part series of hour-long episodes will feature a range of animals including dogs, horses, cats, guinea pigs and parrots, and each programme will focus on one owner and their pet, as they are given the opportunity to meet potential new owners, get to know their families and see around their homes.
 
With invaluable help and advice throughout from animal experts, the owner will make an informed decision on the best new home for their much-loved pet.
 
Auf Wiedersehen My Pet will explore and celebrate the bond between humans and animals; following the tears of goodbye, and the joy of a new beginning as lives are transformed by pets.
