Very important to watch and learn how puppies that come from Pet Stores eg Pet Smart one must question if the animals came from puppy mills!! It's a shame that we humans treat animals so badly!! I refuse to buy anything with fur made from it!! I also support Care2 Care!! I am against poaching and animal testing!!

The synopsis says it covers farmed animals, but I didn't see it. Kind of sad, since the greatest number of animals abused is not the redneck who puts a cat in a microwave or ties a dog to his truck, but the farmed animals that meat eaters are complicit in. I would recommend an older documentary, Earthlings, for more information on animals and human impacts on them.

This is an advocacy film, rather than a traditional documentary, but while I generally dislike this approach, I found that this film was actually a good introduction to animal-related issues out there. It presented a wide range of topics in a condensed way, so you don't feel overwhelmed with any single issue or disturbed by too many graphic images. There are some graphic images, but definitely not as many as you would expect for a film like this (they skip farm animals entirely). Learned quite a few new things and would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get acquainted with animal rights issues.
