Los Angeles, CA, May 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- 3,500 dogs have been saved through a humane pet shop called Bark n’ Bitches in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles California. The real story about Bark n’ Bitches is told in the documentary “Saved in America; a journey to rescue animals”. A special screening of the film will take place during the “Fur on Fairfax” fundraising event being held May 21, 2014 at The Greenway Court Theater in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles City Council Member, Paul Koretz, will be in attendance to bestow a proclamation acknowledging the enormous achievement of saving so many lives. “Bark n' Bitches humane pet shop model, the first in the country, has forever changed the face of the tortuous puppy mill pet shop,” explains Shannon von Roemer, owner of Bark n' Bitches. “Jimi, a 3 month old stray I rescued from skid row, forever changed the course of my life. Learning that there are 57,000 stray dogs in Los Angeles, I knew I needed to become part of the solution - after saving 3,500 dogs, my model is changing the way America purchases pets.”
Kim Sill, creator of the documentary describes her film, “On my journey into the animal rescue world I met incredible people who I filmed to help tell their stories. Shannon von Roemer was one of those people and she became a friend and a mentor.”
Many celebrity guests are expected to attend the May 21st event in support of animals. The humane pet shop is a well known hot spot for celebrity four legged soul mate matches. Actress and Bark n’ Bitches customer, Nikki Reed notes, “I believe that animals can make people better humans, my dog is my soul mate.”
The Greenway Court Theater is located at 544 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, Ca 90036. Red Carpet arrivals will begin at 6 pm, with the film screening at 7 pm.
