Long before Jill Rappaport became know for her animal advocacy, the NBC correspondent was already saving the lives of pets in need.
"I always had rescue dogs growing up," she tells PEOPLE. "I was the kid that would come home with a stray, even if it was a little mouse."
Now an award-winning animal advocate and author, Rappaport is teaming up with celebs including Betty White, Lindsey Vonn and Emmylou Harris for her new special Best in Shelter, which aims to raise awareness for homeless animals and to help them find their forever homes.

Admit it, everyone has wanted to be part of the Braverman clan at some point.
Not because they had it all together – because they definitely didn't. They were far from perfect and didn't always see eye to eye, but the love they shared with one another was genuinely beautiful.
There wasn't a school play or family dinner that a Braverman missed. So, of course, everyone had to come together for Hank and Sarah's wedding on Thursday's series finale – even Haddie (Sarah Ramos), who hadn't been in an episode since coming out to her parents in season 5.

Anyone hoping for another NBC musical hate-watch were probably disappointed by Peter Pan Live! Thursday night.
It wasn't perfect by any means – switching between live singing and all those filmed ads killed just about any theatrical energy and flow well before the three hours were up – but the production was colorful and glitch-free.
Allison Williams of Girls made a much more committed Peter than Carrie Underwood did a Maria von Trapp in last year's endless Sound of Music Live!, and Christopher Walken's extremely peculiar Captain Hook was a triumph.
