Feel Good Friday: Who speaks for those with no voice?

Published by Vantha Embry on

Who speaks for those with no voice?  I’m sure if puppy mill animals could speak, they would have a lot to say

History was made on March 2 when the Boston City Council unanimously passed an ordinance that bans the sale of puppies, kittens and rabbits in pet stores. The bill also bans the sale of these animals on public grounds, in parking lots and outdoor markets.  This was a HUGE success- but the nation has a long way to go…

Most puppies sold in pet store come from puppy mills, where dogs are generally kept in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food, water or socialization. Puppies born in mills are prone to illnesses that can be life-threatening and expensive to treat, and the unwitting consumers who purchase them are often left heartbroken.

A Voice for Lil Olive is a new documentary coming soon from award-winning filmmaker Pete Schuermann. The film explores the special bond between pets and their families, and how rescued dogs change lives. The film’s mission is to make people aware of and to change attitudes about rescued pets through the telling of Lil Olive’s tale…

The film will take a positive approach to what can be a very negative story. It is not about puppy mills, but rather about the joys (and challenges) of caring for these lovable pets and how they change people’s lives for the better with love and compassion — despite all their suffering.

A Voice for Lil Olive is expected to release later in 2016.
