Puppycide Doc Seeks to End National Tragedy
Hollywood, CA—Every 98 minutes a dog is shot by law enforcement. A new documentary from Ozymandias Media seeks to end this tragedy by bringing national attention to the issue.
PUPPYCIDE is a feature length 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 all love our dogs. To us, they are family. But law enforcement is treating them as a threat and shooting them with startling, and increasing frequency,” said Michael Ozias, director of PUPPYCIDE. “If more people know about this they will demand solutions. That is the power of a documentary and the reason we feel this film is so important."
The directors are turning to Kickstarter to fund the documentary and grow a grassroots movement to end puppycide. Kickstarter is the world’s largest crowdfunding website.
“We believe in the power of film to reveal emotional truths, to take an audience on a journey that delivers them to a new place where they see the world differently," said Patrick Reasonover, producer. "By putting our production experience into PUPPYCIDE, we believe that we can make a difference for millions of people and animals.”
