Millions of rescue dogs from the rural South have been transported to new homes thanks to the tireless efforts of a vast, grassroots network of dog rescuers.
  
FREE PUPPIES! is the true story of where those dogs came from and the grim challenges facing a group of women rescuers working together to save them.
 
 
 
 
A New York Times Noteworthy Film of the Summer
"No, they won’t be handed out with tickets, but presumably seeing rescue dogs placed in new homes in a documentary will make you smile all the same."
~ The New York Times
 
 
The first feature film on the booming national movement to relocate rescue dogs:

"Fascinating. To bring lovely animals up from the South is appealing, but how can we help these shelters become sustainable themselves?"
~ CJ Bentley, VP Animal Welfare, Atlanta Humane Society
 
 
Although transports have moved dogs from the South for decades, when Hurricane Katrina left more than 250,000 pets stranded, the infrastructure of modern pet transport for a nation-wide dog rescue effort was born. Since then, individual volunteers, transporters, shelters and rescue groups have created a movement to place millions of southern dogs in areas of the country with high demand for adoption but low supply.

By following a group of women dog rescuers from Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee, FREE PUPPIES! reveals the challenges that contribute to the rescue dog crisis in the first place. These women not only save dogs from euthanasia, but also organize affordable and accessible spay and neuter, reform local ordinances, advocate for humane education, and fight urgent and complex challenges facing underserved areas of the rural South.

The film includes interviews with the ASPCA, Atlanta Humane Society, McKamey Animal Center, My Kids Have Paws Veterinary Clinic, Dixie Day Spay, Badass Brooklyn, and dozens of rescue organizations, shelter directors, healthcare providers, and local officials.

Brave Paws offers brand new solution for stressed-out dogs suffering during fireworks and thunderstorms.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs:plant-based chewable offers calming support for everyday stress and anxiety in dogs, including noise phobia.

(Greensboro, NC): The team at Brave Pawsknows that dogs are an important part of the family. Like any other member of the family, our furry friends experience nervousness and anxiety, especially during fireworks, thunderstorms and travel. Since no one likes to see their pets in distress, this can be a stressful time for everyone.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs is a clinically studied and patented botanical that may help ease stress and anxiety in dogs. The plant-based chewables are made from a sustainably sourced blend containing naturally occurring compounds, including betulinic acid, which have been found to promote a sense of calm and relaxation in dogs.

Many things can cause anxiety in dogs, such as noise phobia, separation from their owner, travel or even the aging process. Noise phobia is one of the most common types of anxiety in dogs, affecting roughly 45% of canines. Loud random noises, such as thunderstorms and fireworks, can trigger dogs with noise phobia. For dog owners, summer fireworks celebrations and thunderstorms come with more than just fun and games. Dogs with a fear of loud noises such as thunder can cause danger of harming themselves trying to escape the noise.

“Dogs suffer from anxiety just as much as we do, if not more. Our chewables offer a sustainably sourced, plant-based solution that may help ease anxiety from noise phobia, separation from their owner, and everyday stress,” says Mark Hill, CEO of AABEX Animal Health, the owner of the Brave Paws brand. “We’re dog lovers too, and we just want our pups to be comfortable when faced with stressful events,” says Hill.

“The active ingredients in Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs, Souroubea Spp. and Platanus Spp., are supported by both clinical and safety studies,” says Dr. Shannon Gregoire, veterinarian, media personality, and editor of Pet Candy Magazine. “The research is promising. These chewables may help calm dogs through stressful events like fireworks shows and thunderstorms,” says Gregoire.

Although both humans and dogs experience anxiety, dogs show it in different ways. These include panting, drooling, pacing, excessive barking, restlessness, and sometimes even aggressive or destructive behavior. Dogs can become anxious during thunderstorms, vet visits, road trips, loud noises, when the dog is separated from their owner, and—of course—during fireworks. While owners are always encouraged to take basic steps to ease their dog’s anxiety—such as giving them love and comfort and using training to help desensitize them to stressful stimuli—some dogs need additional support. That’s where Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs comes in. For best results, the appropriate dose should be given to the dog 60 minutes before a stressful event, such as a storm or fireworks show. This product can be used daily, up to three times per day.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables are formulated with a clinically-studied and patented blend. The active ingredients that make up the patented formula include:

  • Souroubea spp.—Souroubea, a genus of flowering plants native to Costa Rica and other tropical areas, has traditionally been used in Central American cultures for its calming properties to treat nervousness and anxious behavior.
  • Platanus spp. bark—Platanus, also known as the North American Sycamore Tree, was traditionally used by Native Americans and early settlers for its purifying properties, to relieve internal pain, and for conditions such as colds and coughs.
  • Betulinic acid––a pentacyclic triterpenoid with anxiolytic properties
  • Alpha- and beta-amyrin—triterpines with anxiolytic, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The team at Brave Paws says that these chewables are veterinarian recommended, fast-acting, and non-drowsy. “Our product is not a sedative. Pet parents don’t want to tranquilize their dogs; they just want them to be calm during stressful events,” says Hill.

Brave Paws is also environmentally conscious and responsible with its sourcing. The Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs are made with plant-based ingredients that are sustainably sourced from the United States, Canada, and Costa Rica. Brave Paws partners with Coopecuna, a woman-led co-op in rural Costa Rica that practices regenerative farming to improve soil composition, ecological biodiversity, and the local community.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables are available in bottles of 30 chewables for $29.99, and 3-packs with 90 chewables for $76.50 (a 15% discount off the list price). To order online, find more information on the brand and its story, or check out the science and behavior tips on their blog, visit www.mybravepaws.com, or on their Facebook or Instagram pages @mybravepaws.
