  1. This looks all too familiar, been in the area and witnessed it. I try to help one dog at a time but it’s overwhelming and scary. I’m gonna try to watch this tonight and share this link on my page. I’ve driven down our neighborhood street at night and have seen a group of strays meeting up in the middle of the street at 1 am when there was no car in sight. It’s like they know what to do and where to go. Our neighborhood is not a safe place to get out of the car alone at night 🙁 its so sad.

  2. Hollywood hotshots, should stop paying thousands of dollars for designer dogs and spend their tons of money saving these dogs right in their own back yard instead.

    • or just get togther with others from this neighborhood and catch these dogs spay and nuter them then no dogs will be able to have puppies anymore. they can pay for a few vets to come and fix the dogs in the hood. I am sure some kids would catch the dogs for them especially if its a sports idol or famous Movie starlet helping them out.

    • I too watched this film on Saturday night and have been unable to find a link or information on ways to help. I saw nothing on Animal Planet’s website or anywhere else. If you have found anything or if anyone has please post. It’s upsetting that a film like this was shown and then nothing was mentioned on ways to help. Thank you!

  4. They just sat and videotaped while two pit bulls ran around the middle of a busy street and called animal control *after* one was hit by a car and suffered a severely broken leg. I understand the point of this show is to bring awareness but that is ridiculous and infuriating.
