Film Synopsis

A Southern Fix is feature length documentary about an American tragedy that leaves over 3 million dead annually. That’s the approximate number of healthy dogs and cats euthanized in U.S. shelters each year. To put this into perspective, it’s the approximate 2016 population of Chicago, and it’s a hard number to comprehend… 8200 every day / 342 every hour / nearly 6 per minute!

Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats. Almost half are euthanized.

Filmmakers Michael Samstag and Josh Gildrie went on a quest to find out why. Traveling over 5000 miles, they interviewed experts from the HSUS, ASPCA, Animal Rescue Corp, Animal Aid USA, Companion Animal Institute of TN, Young Williams Animal Shelter, UT College of Veterinary Medicine, and dozens of shelters, humane societies, rescues, vets and volunteers.

The journey took them to surprising places and the resulting film became more than a film about a problem. It became a film about the discovery of solutions. A Southern Fix is a film about how we can stop the killing.
