The question is not,"Can they reason?" nor, "Can they
talk?" but "Can they suffer?"

Saved in America
About the Film

Saved in America is the story of one woman's journey to show America what is happening in the animal welfare world. Kim Sill protested for an entire year to bring awareness about pet shops selling puppy mill dogs. What she found was shocking and led her to ask why half a billion dollars a year is raised in the name of animal welfare and the grassroots rescues in Americas communities are not seeing any of this money? This is the story of the underdogs and the everyday heroes who spend their time and money rescuing animals. Kim met many people on her journey including Pink. Cesar Millan, Phil, Kim Kardashian, and Katherine Heigl who all make appearances in the film to help raise awareness about Americas homeless pet population. Thousands of animals are saved along Kim Sill’s way as she documents and films her way through the rescue world of hoarders, animal abusers, gangs and puppy mills.

America has two nasty little secrets.
  1. All of those cute puppies that are sold in pet stores come from “puppy mills”. Their mothers spend their entire lives in tiny, unsanitary cages, never walked, never petted, never doing anything but making puppies.
  2. Most Americans would rather look the other way than to see what is happening in the animal rescue world.
