Also posted in the Lounge but thought Pets might like it too.
"Dog Eat Dog" is a short film based on the true story of how actor/producer Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes) finally adopted his first dog in a Los Angeles Animal Shelter. During the events of his hilarious trials in attempting to adopt a shelter animal, Sian Heder, the film's director was there by his side. Taking notes. Preparing a great dinner party story. And that story, told on countless occasions, eventually evolved into the script. "Dog Eat Dog" is a twisted, fun, morality tale about the lengths to which some of us will go in order to get what we want.
"We are excited to be sharing "Dog Eat Dog" with Petsami. This story is very close to all of us, as we have all rescued or fostered dogs over the years. The story of the film is an exaggerated account of how I eventually found my rescue dog Noah, but it still reflects a bit of the reality I faced when I was looking to adopt a shelter dog. Additionally, we are incredibly honored to have Philip Baker Hall and Sharon Wilkins, both pet lovers themselves, join us to make the film," said star of film Zachary Quinto.
Watching the dogs in the park and wishing I could so badly have one. Not that I was fixed on one dog in particular, but for a long time my economic circumstances and living situation didn't allow me to have a pet. Then when I had my job for a while and got my own place, I got my dog. I met her online through Petfinder, and it's been love ever since. So much better than online dating.
