You Can't Keep the Mall Dogs Down

A few weeks back I wrote several articles and posted interviews with Jessi Badami and Lili Chen from Mall Dogs, the Documentary for their Kickstarter campaign.

The Kickstarter campaign didn't work out exactly the way they planned, however it is helping to move things forward. This project is one that is near and dear to my heart having rescued several shelter dogs and recognizing the challenge that most shelter environments present to animals, shelter personnel, and prospective adoptive parents. Throughout the campaign Jessi and I had a couple of exchanges and when the Kickstarter ended without funding the movie, she asked if I would come on board in a more official capacity to help.

I jumped at the opportunity and I'm working diligently to help promote this project move forward.

Mall Dogs' new home is on the DogParent.com site and I'm looking forward to get this in front of more people than ever before.

Our challenge is getting the teaser trailer for the film in front of as many people as possible and then converting folks to donate a buck or five to help get it made. Jessi has been involved with creating a number of films and after talking with her about her plans for the final project, I can confirm her commitment to excellence is second to none.

If there's one thing that you do today play the video I've conveniently attached to this article.


Pretty cool stuff, right?

OK, now that I have your attention, share the video with a friend. You could post it on another website if you have one, but much easier is just pasting a link to this post in an email and send it out to that friend. Better make it three friends as the first two may be on vacation.

Next, if you're a blogger, you know as well as I do that you're always searching for something to write about. Pop me out a note and let me know if you're interested in getting more information on the project or would like to talk with any of the crew about their inspirations and how we intend on tackling this project.
