Animal-Rescue Doc ‘Breaking the Chain’ Coming to Digital HD Sept. 1

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.

  1. Bless PETA’s fieldworkers for coming to the aid of animals whose owners can’t be bothered to properly care for them. Without PETA, who knows how many dogs would die alone on the ends of chains, shivering in the cold, or how many cats would languish with fatal diseases and broken bones. I hope everyone watches this and gets inspired to do something to help animals in their own communities!

  2. I’m so thankful that this film was made. People need to know the agony countless dogs are forced to endure when their guardians leave them outside to freeze and overheat at the end of a barbaric chain. We need more anti-tethering laws to stop this rampant cruelty.

  3. Sounds awesome! I can’t wait to see it. It shouldn’t take a documentary to point out the obvious–that everyone should be kind to animals–but sometimes it does. I’m so glad that PETA’s fieldworkers are working to stop animal abuse. Very cool of Angelica Huston to lend her support, too!

  4. These fieldworkers are genuine heroes, but all of us can make a difference. If you see an animal in trouble, take action. Call law enforcement. Try to intervene. You, too, can save lives.
