You have probably noticed that I am a fan of dogs.
I like cats and the rest too but, I am partial to dogs.
I’d Save Them All #SecondChanceDogs @ASPCA
I hate hearing and reading about those puppy mills and the like that seem to think that it is okay to treat dogs in a manner that I would not like to be treated.
Have you ever wondered what happens to those dogs that are rescued from puppy mills and other similar places?
Usually, in those stories on the news, we hear about dogs that are so traumatized by the treatment that they have received that they can barely trust or function.
What happens to the dogs that are rescued?
I learned a lot in new ASPCA documentary, Second Chance Dogs, was just released on Netflix.
The film follows the stories of six extremely fearful dogs rescued from cruelty and taken to the ASPCA’s Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, showcasing their heartwarming journey to finding a loving home. Launched in 2013, the ASPCA’s Behavioral Rehabilitation Center is the first and only facility dedicated to rehabilitating dogs suffering from severe fear due to puppy mills, hoarding, and other cruelty.
According the the ASPCA, dogs who suffer the brutal conditions of puppy mills and animal hoarding often become highly fearful due to the isolation they’ve experienced. This anxiety and inability to adjust to the real world makes of many them unadoptable, putting their lives in grave danger.
“Second Chance Dogs,” which aired on Animal Planet on April 16 and is now on Netflix, tells the story of one facility dedicated to giving these abused and neglected animals another chance. Through innovative techniques, patience, and complete commitment, the staff at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center is moving these animals — once considered hopeless cases — from rescue to rehabilitation, and ultimately into safe and loving homes.
Over the course of six months, we meet several dogs in the program, including Alaskan malamutes and dachshunds, following their progress and outcomes as they learn to be handled by people, walk with a leash, engage in healthy play, and exhibit the kind of social behavior that make dogs so special and beloved.
“Second Chance Dogs” was directed, shot, and edited by Kenn Bell, a freelance filmmaker and animal welfare advocate. In 2011, Kenn developed the critically-acclaimed documentary “Hero Dogs of 9/11,” which aired on Animal Planet in both the U.S. and Canada.
Seriously, I’d save them all if I could!
