Free puppies!

Wishman, Samantha, (film director,, film producer,, editor.). Thomas, Christina, (film director,, film producer,, editor,, narrator.). Hollydale Productions, (production company.). Failed Pilots (Firm), (production company.). First-Run Features (Firm), (publisher.).

Summary: If you're looking for a dose of wiggly, waggy, puppy-dog cuteness in Free Puppies!, you won't be disappointed but along with it, you'll gain a new awareness of a chronically overlooked crisis that's dogging the rural American South. Skimpy funding for shelters, high rates of poverty, and a warm climate have led to an overwhelming influx of stray dogs with nowhere to go. Directors Samantha Wishman and Christina Thomas narrow their focus to Dade County in northwest Georgia, where an intrepid group of local women has stepped up to compensate for the lack of an operating animal shelter. Their grassroots efforts to start up a spay-and-neuter program, rescue countless adorable strays from euthanasia and neglect, and place them in loving "forever homes" will pluck at the heartstrings of any dog person.
