While the notion of tending to animal's emotional wellbeing might be the cause of derision in some circles, the series emphasizes that there's nothing really amusing about a spiritually wounded pet. Of the human participants in Taking Care, one has recently emerged as a star-in-the-making: Saul Rubinek. The project was the handiwork of producer/director Clarke Mackey, a Canadian TV stalwart since the early 1970s.
