The animal-rescue documentary Breaking the Chain will come out on digital HD Sept. 1 from Virgil Films.
From executive producer Anjelica Huston, Breaking the Chain follows fieldworkers with PETA’s Community Animal Project as they visit impoverished areas of Virginia and North Carolina to give care to mistreated animals who — without their help — would continue to suffer or even die. The film explores the uphill battle that faces neglected animals and their champions who work on the frontlines of the animal neglect and overpopulation crisis. Forgotten animals rely on PETA’s field team for even the most basic necessities of life as often these are the only humans in their lives providing them with adequate shelter, basic medical care, or even much-needed affection.
Confronting misconceptions from within the animal sheltering community and beyond, Breaking the Chain celebrates real efforts to change the world for companion animals and the behind-the-scenes work of the people who are making it happen.
