Jene Nelson, the producer/director of “I Breathe” is inviting Whoopi Goldberg and rest of the “The View” team to watch the documentary about the horrors of puppy mills.
Back on March 18, Goldberg defended her so-called “right” to shop for puppies at pet stores, despite the fact that doing so actually supports puppy mills.
From a press release posted on PR.com – “” The documentary will open your eyes to the need for public awareness and make you question why domestic animals are treated as commodities. “”
I Breathe chronicles what is involved on a rescue mission and profiles some of the dogs that are on their way to a new life. The documentary takes you inside a commercial dog breeding kennel and top professionals in the industry attend an unprecedented meeting to discuss why there is so much secrecy and a reluctance to talk to the media. Additional elements include:
· Dog auctions and perspective regarding why they exist
· Undercover video of a big money-making kennel
· An interview with the breeders of “Bo Obama” and their views on dog breeding
· Mike Arms, president of the Helen Woodward Animal Center, tells his compelling story of why he devoted his life to saving animals
· A grim, yet necessary segment on the consequences of irresponsible owners and overcrowded shelters
· The celebration of dogs that now have new lives
Ms. Nelson contacted The View via email and offered to send a copy of I Breathe for Ms. Goldberg and producers of the show to watch. She has yet to be contacted by The View but is hopeful the powers that be will consider the offer and respond.
