Groups across the country are working to help homeless animals and get more pets adopted into wonderful loving homes. Some of these incredible stories are featured in the PBS documentary “Shelter Me”, hosted by Katherine Heigl and sponsored by Halo. The film, by acclaimed filmmaker Steven Latham, aired last year across the nation and is now available for rental at 45,000 Redbox locations.
We’re excited to announce that from Tuesday April 23 – Monday April 29, Redbox will donate 100% of the proceeds of Shelter Me rentals to the Halo Pet Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting shelters and rescues across the United States. In fact, 100% of every dollar raised by the Halo Pet Foundation goes to pets in need and helping educate people about rescue.
Shelter Me celebrates shelter pets with uplifting stories and shares how people’s lives are dramatically improved when they bring a shelter pet into their lives.
The film follows the journey of two dogs who were abandoned and lost, who ultimately found happy loving homes. Filmmakers go into a women’s prison, where inmates train shelter dogs become service dogs for people with disabilities. The film also shares the stories of two war veterans, struggling to cope with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and how shelter dogs literally saved their lives.
