Our Dogs. Our Police Officers.

But there are people fighting for change.

This is their story.

He then co-founded Ozymandias Media where he has written and directed web videos on socially relevant topics like the drug war, the legal system, and education. He holds a B.A. in Film Production from the University of Central Florida.

To the backers from Kickstarter and the organizations that have made this possible.

Support the Film

Thanks to the generous support of our Kickstarter backers and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, we’ve created a powerful feature-length film to foster dialogue and create change for our dogs and our police officers. But our work is far from over.

Now the time has come to get this film in front of audiences, dog owners, police departments, animal welfare advocates, and the general public, people who together can use the stories we’ve captured to help solve this problem.

Please consider supporting our efforts to distribute this film through your charitable donation.
