The Rescuer (2011)

| Documentary
The Rescuer Poster
3:18 | Trailer
719 days of one man's obsession to rescue two white German Sheperds, Mobie and Nemo, from the deep wilderness.


Leo Grillo





The story begins 11-years-ago when this obsessed man begins making a documentary film on abandoned animals, and he shoots what he expects to be "bookends" for this film. The dogs he meets that fateful day take him on a chase that ends ten days short of two years later, with resounding success. The very process of filming both tragedy and comedy, unexpectedly forces the rescuer to discover the underlying motives of why he changed the course of his life, and why he feels compelled to dedicate the rest of that life to the plight of suffering animals, even at the expense of his own dreams.

Bring a box of tissues!
28 November 2010 | by rwhitney-909-892596See all my reviews

Leo Grillo is a wonderful human being. He has worked for many years through his organization, D.E.L.T.A. (Dedication and Everlasting Love for Animals), to raise our awareness that "animals are people too" and that they should not be discarded like yesterday's trash when they are no longer convenient for us to keep. He has really put his money where is mouth is by building the largest sanctuary in the world for the animals he has rescued from abandonment in the wilderness. His mission doesn't just include dogs. He has cats, horses, rabbits, goats - you name it in the way of domestic animals and he has probably rescued at least one. He has seen the horrible things that people do to their pets and he has made it right for as many as he possibly can. Watching his personal mission in action will make you feel good about the potential of the human race. You will need a box of tissues as you witness what he does to rescue animals in need in this documentary.
