Give Me Shelter captures a sad reality through interviews with noted celebrity animal activists and professional advocates. It conveys something about our own sentience or lack thereof and our disregard for many members of the animal kingdom. Despite how progressive we may perceive our society to be, this documentary clearly establishes how far we need to go.
The film takes us on a journey of young dogs and cats from commercial puppy mills and catteries to retail pet stores around the nation. It reveals the horrific nature of the horse slaughter industry and the brutal last days of companion equids.
The film also exposes the brutality on fur farms and factory food animal farms. It explores the lives of performing animals. Give Me Shelter exposes the dangerous and irresponsible trade in exotic animals here in the US. It broaches the subject of conservation and the plight of threatened and endangered species around the world. It is a must see!
