As Hallmark Channel’s resident on-air pet adoption expert Larissa Wohl has every reason to be proud. Since joining the network’s successful lifestyle show Home & Family as a producer working behind the scenes, and then moving in front of the camera, her daily efforts have shed light on the plight of shelter pets and helped over 650 needy furbabies find forever homes. It’s not the career trajectory the journalist major saw herself taking, but it's one she wouldn't change. "Anyone who's spoken to me for more than five minutes knows what an animal lover I am," Wohl explained to MediaVillage during a recent interview. "So, when Hallmark decided to amp up their pet adoption initiative, I sat with them and said, ‘Let me help in whatever way that means, either behind or in front of the camera, as this is my world.’ It all fell into place and became a wonderful marriage of my journalist skills, on-camera experience and my passion and love of animals.”
