A documentary about the growing “no kill” animal protection movement will have its "world premiere" June 6 at a theater in Minneapolis, one of the film’s producers announced Jan. 22.

“Other dates and cities for the screening will be announced in February, including Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville, Austin, Phoenix, Charlotte, Atlanta, Cleveland and more,” said the No Kill Advocacy Center, which made the video with No Kill Nation and Sagacity Productions.

The video, “Redemption: The No Kill Revolution in America,” highlights efforts across the United States to dramatically reduce the number of cats and dogs killed in animal shelters. An estimated 4 million cats and dogs are put down in city- and county-run shelters each year. No-kill advocates argue that that figure could be slashed if shelters adopted a host of reforms, ranging from high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter programs to more customer-friendly adoption procedures.

More information about the film, including a 12-minute trailer and how to buy tickets to the Minneapolis screening, is available here.

UPDATE: An updated list of cities where the film will be shown is available here.
