Following up on last week’s video feature of a woman recounting her decision to live with 13 dogs, this week we are featuring her current fight for justice after a vigilante hoard broke into her house to separate her from her dogs. At the time of the break-in, she was living with over 20 dogs, drawing much criticism from those concerned about hoarding. An apparent rescue organization then tries to take the law into their own hands rather than work with the woman to ensure each animal is ultimately cared for.


The American Strays Project film series is a part of the World Animal Awareness Society working to document the complex interactions between the people and dogs of Detroit, Michigan. They hope to create education and awareness in order to ultimately help the numerous strays and neglected dogs in Detroit.
