About Larissa


Larissa Wohl grew up with a heart to heal and a determination to save the underdogs of the world.
At a very young age, Larissa and her mother Liz found themselves saving unwanted animals of all sorts. From small to large dogs, dozens of rabbits and many stray cats, the Wohl household quickly became the “go-to” haven for animals in need.

During her teen and college years Larissa furthered her interest in animals by becoming active in animal welfare issues and volunteering at local shelters.

Pulling over to corral a lost dog, emergency runs to the California Wildlife Center, or jumping into a shopping mall  pond to save a baby duck were all in a days work!

As a news anchor, field reporter and journalist, Larissa became the local animal expert in every news market she resided.
She uncovered a local animal dumping ground in Arizona, introduced the world to issues plaguing Central California shelters, and highlighted the importance for helping senior dogs in San Diego.
Larissa’s life mission became clear… use her voice to help the voiceless.

You can now watch Larissa in action everyday as Hallmark Channel’s “Adoption Ever After” host for “Home & Family”.

Each week she showcases dozens of animals around the country looking for homes and tackles important pet-parent topics like basic training techniques and breed knowledge.

In addition to that, she can be seen helping host several projects for Hallmark Channel including the 2018 and 2019 American Rescue Dog Show, Kitten Bowl Live and Countdown to Valentine’s Day and Adoption Ever After Preview Special!
