Ithaca Screening of Redemption: The No-Kill Revolution in America
Shelter killing is the leading cause of death for healthy dogs and cats in the United States. It doesn't have to be. When the early founders of the animal protection movement died and their organizations took over the job of killing those they had been formed to protect, a fiery zeal was replaced with a smoldering ember that gave little light or warmth and the humane movement went to sleep. After over 100 years of this antiquated and deadly paradigm, the grassroots of the animal protection movement is finally waking up. Starting with the founding of the first SPCA in North America by Henry Bergh and continuing to this very day, Redemption is the story of heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. But most of all, it is the story of believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.
Proceeds from the screening will go to the Central New York Spay/Neuter Assistance Program
