In this Dec. 9, 2014 photo provided by Karleigh Vroman, Hayden and Maureen Mauk, their son Finnegan, center, and daughter Lucy pose with their newly-adopted St. Bernard Frankie, left, and their two other rescue dogs, after seeing "Telethon Dogs" presented by Queen Latifah over the two-hour Thanksgiving night telecast, at their home in Torrance, Calif. Producers say more than 4,400 people filed adoption papers for homeless dogs during what was billed as the first all-star dog adoption telethon. Director Michael Levitt says it would be huge if only half of the applications result in adoptions. Levitt also says he thinks anyone who watched the show would strongly consider a rescue next time they get a dog. Seventy dogs from rescues across the country were featured on the two-hour Thanksgiving night telecast — a show the producer hopes becomes a fixture in the future. More than 4 million people tuned in to the show, which was co-hosted by actresses Hilary Swank and Jane Lynch, and aired on donated time from the Fox Network.(AP Photo/Karleigh Vroman)
