Without a doubt, the place of animals in our life is now permanent. Their companionship provides us with emotional support, responsibility, and deep bonds found in few other places. Although for many animals, the life of comfort and friendship isn’t the life they are dealt. Nearly 1.5 million animals are euthanized yearly thanks to the overcrowding and under funding of traditional shelters, the lack of outlets available to animals seeking homes, and from the average citizen choosing their pet acquisition from sources like pet stores and puppy mills, rather than adopting a rescue. Our film, A Rescue Story will dramatically present the challenges facing traditional shelters and societal causes for animal overpopulation. We will present solutions to the problem by showing alternatives to euthanasia and highlight the ways different people, shelters, and organizations are combating the problem around the country.
