Once a week, its Redbox movie night. Extra special if dogs are featured in the movie. Well this week movie night was extra special as we borrowed Shelter ME, an inspiring documentary film about special bond with shelter pets. What’s also PAWsome … Redbox is donating the dvd rental proceeds between 4/23-4/29 to support Ellen DeGeneres Halo Pet Foundation.
About the documentary film …
It starts with two stray dogs brought in the shelter. They are both lucky as they got adopted and found their forever homes. The second part of the documentary is about women in prison training shelter dogs to be service dogs. The third part is a tear jerking as army combats suffering from injuries and/or coping with PTSD are provided with the shelter service dogs. These dogs have turned the army combats life around. Both the shelter dogs and the army combats suffered similar pain of isolation and they are helping each other to feel safer.
Shelter Me is inspiring and uplifting. It is a must see an hour long documentary.
Find some time to borrow the video and you’ll help the Halo Pet foundation.
Here’s a snippet of the documentary video.
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs

This is a wonderful movie! I purchased a copy online last year and have watched it a few times. I think EVERYONE should watch it. I believe there is a second, follow-up documentary in the works. I plan to purchase it as well.

Had no idea about this. We aren’t big movie fans so mom has never used a redbox but we see them everywhere these days. Maybe she can look into this one.
Comedy Plus says
What a great video. I’m going to have to watch this.
Have a woof woof day Sugar. My best to your mom. 🙂
My Mum is going to have to look out for this film in Europe …. I am not such a big TV or film watcher, even if there are dogs involved, just not my scene I guess.
Caren Gittleman says
that is such an impawtant documentary! Mom posted the video on my blog some months ago. It is super impawtant to get the word out!
Barks and licks and love, Dakota
Oh, that sounds like an AMAZIN’ movies!! And, I just LOVES the idea of the donations goin’ to Ellen’s charity! YEA!
I’ll be on the look out for it (or, I should say, MA will be on the look out for it!) BOL
That’s wonderful that the donations are going to charity! Our mommy can’t handle any movies or books about animals because she never, ever, ever forgets them so gets leaky eyes for long afterwards. She’s weird.
Thanks for the information, Sugar. Dogs are miracles on four feet!
Happy Blog Hop Day!

Thanks for the tip on the movie Sugar. It sounds wonderful and you are a very good girl to recommend a movie where the profits go to such a great cause. 🙂
We will see if we can find it!

I have two movies to return today, so I will pick this up. I know I will enjoy it.
Murphy & Stanley says
We will check that out, we have heard a lot about it lately. BTW, did you have some time with lady O??

I love that shelter dogs are being trained to help our veterans. In my opinion both deserve far better than they usually get.
