A 3-Legged Rescue Dog with a Cause Inspires Film Opening in Theaters August 28th
July 6, 2015— Dogs really can be humans greatest teachers and Marshall the Miracle Dog will be “hopping” across the country this summer on his “Commit to Be Kind” tour in anticipation of the release of his film, Marshall’s Miracle, opening August 28th in select theaters.
Marshall, a 3-legged scar faced, rescue dog, found near death in a deplorable hoarding situation in Marshall, MO, proves after dying 3 times on the Humane Society’s operating table, that he has a purpose to serve. Marshall, now a certified therapy dog, carries his messages of Empathy, Perseverance and Forgiveness and has visited over 370 schools (120,000) students since the launch of his award winning children’s book (2012). Now his life’s journey inspired a major motion film, Marshall’s Miracle.
Owner Cynthia Willenbrock comments, “I was told Marshall had a reason he fought so hard to survive when I adopted him in 2011. It did not take long to see the connections children (and adults) made with Marshall. It was clear what we had to do. Shortly after writing his children’s book, I quit my pharmaceutical sales job in order to ‘share’ Marshall with others. I witness Marshall “minor miracles” in the lives of others everyday—the stories are countless!”
Marshall has inspired a true movement and now has an Anti-Bullying school curriculum based on his cornerstone messages. For real change to occur it takes collaborations and thus numerous national organizations are behind Marshall such as Girl Scouts of America, 4-H, Pet Shelters Across America and PACERs National Bullying Prevention Center.
Synopsis: Inspired by Marshall’s true story, Marshall’s Miracle, shares the adventure of Finn, a 13-year-old boy, who has become the target of bullies at his new school. Finn is feeling hopeless – that is, until he finds Marshall being caged up by a dog-hoarder. The bond of friendship is immediate. Finn knows he must rescue Marshall, but Marshall has been abused by the other dogs and needs to see the vet right away. The race against the bullies, against the dog hoarder, and against time, is on. In the end, Marshall leads everyone to a place of change, forgiveness, and friendship. Trailer http://vimeo.com/108093075
Marshall’s Miracle received the Audience Choice Award for Best Film at the St. Louis International Film Festival. During Pre-release, the film was also awarded “Best Family Film” at the Wild Rose Film Festival, and the St. Louis Post Dispatch hailed it as the “Best Family Film” in 2014. The Dove Foundation awarded the film "4 out of 5 Doves", and approved the film for “all ages". The film stars Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Lauren Holly (NCIS, Dumb and Dumber), Matthew Settle (Gossip Girl, Band of Brothers), and award-winning comedian Bill Chott, as well as Lucas Carroll (The Informant).
