On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina
turned the Gulf Coast region into a sea of loss and despair. Our nation
sat in dismay as our government failed to respond.
Animals desperately searched and pleaded
for help as they were left behind with no choice but to endure a hurricane,
floods and a fight to survive the streets on their own. People from
across the United States, Canada and countries abroad heard their cries
and took it upon themselves to do something about it.
Left Behind Without A Choice explores the less media-friendly side of the animal rescue efforts.
The physical and emotional conditions of the animals are told by the
very people who cared for them and nurtured them back to health as they
recount their journey with Hurricane Katrina animal rescue. A few animals'
stories have been completely documented from peril to the path to recovery
and are included in this documentary.
Featuring the staff of “Best
Friends Animal Society” and music by Jessy Greene, Wally Borgan
and Marc Perlman (Jayhawks).
