IDA-Supported Doc of the Week

Directed by
Dana Keithly

April is ASPCA's Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. This week's film exposes the country's broken animal sheltering system through the personal accounts of those who dare to speak up for the voiceless -- the volunteers. These individuals have an up-close view of the harrowing and often absurd practices that many publicly funded animal shelters engage in on a daily basis. What unfolds is a shocking and often irreverent look at the politics, propaganda, backstabbing, and retaliation encompasses animal welfare.
