Storyline

Humans are not the only ones in need of rescuing and in the city of Los Angeles, the members of SMART (Specialized Mobile Animal Rescue Team) have stepped up to save lives. Led by Armando Navarrete, this division of trained and passionate animal lovers risks life and limb to rescue every kind of creature in need, from horses to mountain lions to cats and dogs! Follow Armando as he struggles to get his team off the ground, survives death-defying rescues and finds love, all in the midst of LA's heartbreaking animal shelter system. Never giving up, Armando and his team have saved over 1000 lives and created new tactics, technology, and inspiration for similar programs to develop in more cities. Shot over the course of three years, SMART is a great example of how a team of passionate and dedicated people can become real-life superheroes. Written by Cinema Libre Studio

Situations and Characters that Resonate on Many Levels--SMART is a Unique and Compelling Documentary
14 December 2016 | by logenzSee all my reviews

I have seen SMART several times and it continues to hold my attention. The filmmakers do an excellent job of balancing footage of animal rescues with ethical considerations and human drama. They take viewers through the diverse neighborhoods of Los Angeles and also touch upon issues post-Hurricane Katrina. There are strong central characters and themes that resonate on a universal level. This documentary reminds us that we have a responsibility to care for the animals in our environments, and that animals are essential to our well being. SMART as a team and film is unique and sure to be appreciated by those who value companion animals.
