Wonderful story that needed to be told!
4 August 2014 | by (Petersburg, VA) – See all my reviews

I highly recommend this heartwarming story of love, forgiveness & justice for all living creatures! We need more of this kind of positive, compassionate message in the world! It is difficult to understand how anyone could abuse an innocent animal so cruelly but so important to shine a light on this cruelty so it can be stopped and punished. Donna and all who fight for justice are true heroes. We can not change the world overnight...but we can each change our little corner of it. Watching Susie's Hope reminds us of the potential for heroism in each of us and helps inspire us to do whatever it is we can do to "fight the good fight".
