Susan Denicker May Not Have an Ark, But If You Need a Pet or Farm Animal Moved, She is the Country's Modern "Noah"

We Move Animals Premieres Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, at 10 PM ET/PT On Nat Geo WILD

(Washington, DC - December 20, 2013) You need an animal moved - regardless of size, time or location? No problem. Meet Susan Denicker and her two grown kids, Anthony and Alyssa. This tough, no-nonsense mother of two has turned her passion for animals into a family business, known as Animals Away. And, now Susan has become our go-to person for moving wild cargo. We've got a front row seat at all action! Nat Geo WILD presents a new three-part series, We Move Animals, premiering Saturday, Jan. 18, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (For more information, visit www.natgeowild.com and follow us on Twitter at twitter.com/NGC_PR.)

The Denicker family works together to move livestock, unusual pets and, of course, furry family members to the next destination quickly and safely, all while keeping their human clients happy and calm. We follow the Denickers from the initial phone call through the final delivery, capturing all of the antics along the way. What seems like an easy job in theory can prove to be a frustrating, nearly impossible task in reality. But Susan is not one to back down from a challenge, even when her family have their doubts.

Susan's main goal is to make the move as stress-free as possible for both the animals and their owners. She has been known to drive straight through the night to limit the time the animal spends in a crate. Susan and her team transport 10 dogs and three cats from their foster home in West Virginia to a no-kill shelter in Salem, Mass. - a whopping 750 miles away. We'll see them move three black bears across four states, a rare lizard called a crocodile monitor complete with razor-sharp claws and a tail like a whip that has to fly across the country, smelly pigs in Brooklyn weighing close to 100 pounds each, and even four French bulldogs with breathing problems from New York City to Fire Island. Grab the kids for an exciting journey across the nation with some of our favorite animals. It's gonna be one heck of a road trip!

Premiere Episodes Incude:

We Move Animals: Alpaca Palooza Premieres Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, at 10 p.m. ET/PT Alpacas are on the move! Susan's old friend Barbara runs an alpaca farm in Oregon, and she needs to get 20 of her alpacas to her son's new farm in Washington. But the Denickers fall behind schedule when they stop to witness the birth of an alpaca and then have to shear the fleece from a few unruly alpacas. Then Anthony is called upon to design a travel crate for The American Eagle Foundation's spokesbird, Challenger - the most famous eagle in America. Challenger has made appearances at events ranging from the World Series to presidential inaugurations! Finally, Susan and Alyssa are called upon by a very particular owner to move his four beloved French bulldogs across land and sea from New York City to Fire Island off the coast of Long Island. The problem: The breed is prone to breathing problems due to their snub noses and they can't regulate their body temperature, and it's high summer in New York City. Can Susan and Alyssa pull it off?

We Move Animals: Croc Around the Clock Premieres Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, at 10 p.m. ET/PT Oink, oink! Susan and Alyssa are tasked with taking two micro pigs from a swanky Brooklyn apartment to a pig day spa in Pennsylvania. But when they get to the pigs' home, they are shocked - the pigs each weigh about 100 pounds! And that's not all; once Susan and Alyssa load up, they suffer a smelly ride to the spa and get stuck cleaning poop out of the crates while the pigs are pampered! Next, the Denickers are called in to transport a rare lizard called a crocodile monitor from a San Diego reptile store to a better home on Long Island with a reptile expert named Jungle Bob. Armed with razor-sharp claws, lethal teeth and a tail like a whip, this lizard proves to be a risky job even for Anthony. Finally, the gang get a call from the Monroe County Animal League in West Virginia to drive 13 rescue dogs to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Mass. Many of these dogs have been traumatized, abandoned or injured, but now are on their way to a no-kill shelter where new homes will be found for them. The only problem: The drive is 13 hours straight through the night. How will these four-legged pups fare?

We Move Animals: Duck, Duck...Loose Premieres Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014, at 10 p.m. ET/PT Here ducky, ducky, ducky. The Carolina Waterfowl Rescue Center needs to relocate and release 100 rehabilitated ducks, geese and swans into the wild. The birds need to be vaccinated, crated and released before nightfall so they can find a place to roost during the daylight hours. Not an easy job, but a necessary one. The next move might be too much for Susan and Anthony to "bear." They will help load up and move three black bears that currently reside on a ranch that is being sold. It's an emotional farewell for their owner, but these bears will be better off going to the Wild Animal Santuary in Colorado where they'll have access to 10 acres of open land. Finally, Anthony heads to Las Vegas to pick up two dogs that were left in a boarding facility and reunite them with their family in Dayton, Ohio. But rerouted planes and missed connections could make this seemingly sweet move more trouble than he thought.

We Move Animals is produced by Nancy Glass Productions for Nat Geo WILD. For Nancy Glass Productions, executive producer is Matthew Noce. For Nat Geo WILD, executive producer is Jenny Apostol; senior vice president of development and production is Janet Han Vissering; and executive vice president and general manager is Geoff Daniels.
