"DOG by DOG"
Join us for the first screening in San Diego of this powerful film, "Dog by Dog". This documentary is about an examination of efforts in the United States to tighten regulations on commercial dog kennels, known as 'puppy mills,' where dogs are considered livestock and kept without adequate regard for their welfare. This inspiring and educational film will impact your view on the USDA and their control over the state of welfare of man's best friend.
If you ever loved a dog, you must see this movie!
"Great info, WITHOUT being graphic! A must see!" - Andrea Cunningham, NOAH, Not One Animal Harmed

Funds raised from the screeing of "Dog by Dog" will:
• sponsor spay/neuter clinics in Escondido and National City.
• sponsor educational materials and advertisements on adopting a pet vs purchasing from a "pet store".
Why Escondido & National City?
• both allow pet store businesses (selling imported puppy-mill pets).
• both have a high pet overpopulation rate.
• both have a large number of ferals, unclaimed strays and relinqushments /intakes at local shelters.
• both demographically are lower-income households.
Did you know?
"Pet stores" will FINANCE a dog or cat just to make the sale.
Many Neuter Scooter clients (using SNAP's low cost spay/neuter service) concede that they can not afford basic pet care, due to the additional monthly payments of their new dog or cat.
This presentation is in memory of OSCAR, La Paloma mascot.
