Susie's Hope DVD movie ~ Review & Giveaway

UPDATE 12/15:  The winner, chosen by random.org is #3 - Vera Wilson.
Congratulations, Vera!  I will be emailing you to get your information.
Thank you to all who entered!

Recently I learned of an organization called Susie's Hope.  It is a nonprofit organization that was created by Donna Lawrence to help end animal abuse.  I learned of this through the movie, Susie's Hope, that I had the privilege to watch and review.

About the movie: Run time 105 minutes
Based on the true story that successfully passed Susie’s Law in North Carolina, which seeks stricter punishment for animal abusers, Susie’s Hope brings to life the inspirational relationship between pit bull attack survivor Donna Lawrence and Susie, a pit bull-mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead. Recognizing reflect and abuse were to blame for the tragic attack that nearly claimed her life 10 months earlier, Donna resumes the battered animal and accepts her as family. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as thyey lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection, not only for Susie, but all animals. Starring Emmanuelle Vaguer (40 Days and 40 Nights), Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans) and Andrea Powell (Ender’s Game, The Twighlight: Breaking Dawn Saga: Part 2), Susie’s Hope is an incredible story of love, loss and redemption.

About Susie:
Susie was found nearly dead in Greenfield Park in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 20, 2009. Just a puppy, Susie had licked the face of her owner’s newborn baby. Her owner became violent—she was beaten so severely her jaw was broken. That wasn’t enough, though. She was then set on fire and left for dead. Incredibly and against all odds Susie survived. Donna Lawrence adopted her two months later. Susie is now a trained therapy dog and event won the American Humane Association’s American Hero Dog this year!

Susie’s Hope website has loads of information and more information on her story.

Susie's Hope is a great family movie!  It made me sad.  It made me angry.  It made me happy.  And it will do that to you too.  If you are an animal lover, you must see this movie!  It will inspire you to do something to help those that God put us charge over.  Even the smallest thing can make a difference.

We got Bandit (bull dog) from the animal shelter when he was around a month old. Guess he had wondered from his mom and was picked up. Was part of our family for 12+ years before he died.

Was a great watch dog. No way would anyone come into the yard without us knowing. He was very good about protecting his family, but great with the children.
