One Hundred Thousand Hearts”  is an award-winning, child-friendly, feature length documentary that is educational, inspiring and action-oriented. The film educates on spay/neuter; feral cats & TNR (trap, neuter, return); responsible pet ownership; and solutions to prevent homeless pets.

The film features veterinarians, shelter workers, rescue groups, volunteers and pet lovers discussing the critical need to spay and neuter our pet population, so we can prevent millions of dogs and cats from being killed each year in shelters and on the streets due to homelessness.

The goal of this documentary is to raise awareness: to educate, enlighten, and encourage people to understand what is happening to companion animals and to learn how to make a difference for the better.  (Participants shown in film in order of response to project announcement.)

some of the emails, tweets, and written responses to 

“One Hundred Thousand Hearts”

1.) “All I can say is wow!!!!!!  . . .  And the music too!!!!  And how many passionate people that got to have a voice!”

2.)  I saw . . . "One Hundred Thousand Hearts".  Such a great movie with such a great message about how we cannot adopt our way out of this problem of killing animals, how Houston needs to spay and neuter these precious beings instead of killing them.  I was so touched and I learned a lot.”

3.) I've told 3 people today about the thrift shops we can donate to so that the animals get the money.”

4.) "I want my daughter and I to volunteer with Buster's Friends."

5.)  Great movie and presentation !”

6.)  “We are going to "Family Day at BARC" sometime soon. It was good for our kids to know that there are so many animals need a help and we can do something about it. Unfortunately we can't adopt any animals right now, but when we are ready to have one, we won't shop, but adopt. Thank you for inviting us!”

7.) Awesome Job! I was really impressed – you definitely nailed the message perfectly! . . . we had the message you were sending and you sent it perfectly in the documentary. I liked the way the story progresses . . .”

8.) Houston and its animal community owe you [all] a great debt of thanks!”

9.)  “It went very well - all of the speakers on the movie were obviously speaking "from the heart" in a deep sense.  They passionately believe in what they are doing and in what needs to be done - that's persuasive in itself even if no rational argument were made - but the arguments are deadly accurate and very well supported.  I think everyone appreciated the film.” 

10.)  “It was a true privilege to be at the premier of your documentary . . . And in rescue too, it never, ever ends but together we will work to make this happen.”

11.)  “Congratulations on your wonderful documentary!  I really enjoyed seeing it!” 

12.)  “Great movie, You have planted a very big seed, and getting people informed about the problem is always the first step in any solution.  So your movie could grow up to be a very big oak tree !   Big time congratulations to you, KP, and everybody else associated with the movie !!!”

13.) “Very informative video about Houston area supporters on this issue. LOVED the part where mentions DOG = GOD :)”

14.) “Great movie :-) .. I am really impressed...”
