A documentary that will show the problems of pet overpopulation and euthanasia rates and how one Humane Society is winning the battle.

About this project

Dying to be Adopted will be a documentary produced by KEYCHAIN-productions LLC.on the problem of animal euthanasia due to pet overpopulation. It's a battle the Vanderburgh Humane Society fights every day. We will show the good and the bad, the joy and the heartbreak, of what is faced daily by the compassionate people who work there. But they are fighting back very aggressively.

The Vanderburgh Humane Society in Evansville, Indiana has gone to great lengths in the past 17 years to reduce their euthanasia numbers and consistently have higher adoption rates. They have programs in place to help spurn adoptions; a program to help reduce the feral cat population in the area and their very own spay/ neuter clinic that, in just a few years time, has had over 25,000 dogs and cats pass through it. VHS is simply AMAZING and stand as a model of what can be done in other areas too.

 The Impact

The goal is to get this documentary widely circulated so it may inspire.  So many animals are surrendered every year with the same thought in mind "oh, he's cute, he will find a home". All of them are cute but the stark reality is not all of them find a home, instead, over half of them will leave the shelter in a bag headed to an incinerator. For some, the only care and love they will ever know comes from those who have the compassion to work at these facilities.

    How about an imaginary face licking from a four legged animal and our sincerest thanks? If face licking isn't your cup of tea, he could just as well shake paws with you and we would still thank you too!!
