"Survivor" host Jeff Probst visits The Early Show to support survival of the four-legged variety, by encouraging puppy adoption.

Puppy Chow is transforming New York City's Military Island in Times Square into the "Island of Adoptable Puppies" and they hope 400,000 puppies will be adopted during National Puppy Adoption Season this summer.

Probst, who has a dog of his own, joins up with Mets Manager Bobby Valentine to help find homes for homeless puppies from the North Shore Animal League.

"It's very important to fully understand your family members personalities, the size of your home and the breed of the puppy you are adopting," said Probst. "Many new owners do not properly estimate the commitment it takes to own a dog, so Bobby and I are hoping to educate the public and help some people find the right puppy for their family."

"The Puppy Chow Patrol," comprised of puppy experts, has been visiting cities across the country all summer hosting clinics about puppy adoption, training and nutrition.
