PUPPYCIDE will be a documentary that takes a journey with victims of puppycide, the dogs and their owners. From the moment they meet and seal their emotional bonds to the excruciating trauma of loss, we follow the dog owners' battles for justice with police culture and the legal system, both of which treat puppycides as acceptable collateral damage.
We successfully raised $45,463 through Kickstarter to make a documentary short. We're continuing our fundraising efforts in the hopes of expanding the documentary into a TV-length version.
