Storyline

MINE is the powerful story about the essential bond between humans and animals told against the backdrop of one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. MINE explores how tragedy intensifies that bond and is told from the perspective of original guardians, rescuers, and adoptive parents of the voiceless victims of Katrina. These individuals are all connected by two things, the tragic aftermath of Katrina and their love of animals. In response to an unprecedented crisis, thousands of pets needed to be transported around the country and adopted even when their displaced guardians still desperately wanted them. Meanwhile, many adoptive guardians have forged strong bonds with their new pets, nurturing them back to health from the traumas they suffered during and after the storm. When two families love the same pet, conflicts inevitably arise over who is the rightful "owner" and what is right for the animal.

"This is my yard. I had a beautiful yard. Oh here's Bandits leash, it was underwater."
4 February 2015 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

That's the opening line from Mine" which had me in tears within the first few minutes of viewing and I wasn't actually sure I'd be able to watch it through as I sat cuddled up with my giant dog and a cat.

Really well done documentary, the utter frustration and sadness really comes through. You also get all sides of this nightmare; the original owners, the new owners, the dog rescuers, the dogs themselves.

This focuses on about 4 victims of hurricane Katrina trying (for years) to get their dogs back. There are a couple of happy endings, a bit of heartbreak If nothing else I hope Katrina changes evacuation policies in the future, this can never be allowed to happen again. 01/13
