DVD Review: Shelter Me
Rated: Not Rated
Street Date: April 30, 2013
Available On: DVD
Synopsis: Shelter Me is a documentary about the impact that shelter dogs can have a positive impact on the lives of soldiers living with post-traumatic stress disorder, help rehabilitate prisoners or simply bring joy to those looking for companionship.
Recommendation: Even though I’m and advocate of adopting from shelters I was expecting an unbearably sappy experience from Shelter Me. Thankfully, Shelter Me turned out to be much more than that. Steven Latham’s film goes deeper than the traditional shelter pet documentary as he explores how abandoned and unwanted dogs can become life-changing catalysts for a variety of people in need.
