Compelling Story, Grab a Tissue
5 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

As an animal lover who has 3 rescue dogs and 1 foster pup right now, I give a huge thumbs up to Susie's Hope. Such a compelling story of overcoming adversity and breed prejudice. This movie is so important to show how we as humans get second chances but animals, now a days (especially pit bulls/mixes) get the short end of the stick. Through Donna's bravery and refusal to take no for an answer, she was able to make a huge strides on the immediate need for animal rights reform. I could not be happier that Susie's story is now being told on the national stage. She and Donna are an inspiration to all. I will watch this movie over and over again.
