Producers of a new documentary on the “no kill” animal protection movement have released a list of 27 cities where the film will be shown.

The list, unveiled May 8, indicates the movie is set to air in 18 cities so far: Albuquerque, N.M. (Aug. 30); Atlanta (Aug. 21); Austin, Texas (Aug. 3); Boston (July 17); Charlotte, N.C. (Aug. 22); Chicago (Sept. 18); Denver (July 12); Fayetteville, Ark. (Aug. 23); Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (June 21); Louisville, Ky. (June 28); Minneapolis (June 6); Norfolk, Va. (July 27); Phoenix (Aug. 16); Pittsburgh (July 25); Sacramento, Calif. (July 10); San Francisco (June 11); Troy, Mich. (Sept. 4); and Washington, D.C. (July 26).

Viewings are being organized in nine more cities: Buffalo, N.Y.; Cleveland; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; Modesto, Calif.; Nashville, Tenn.; New York; Seattle; and Tallahassee, Fla.

Made by the No Kill Advocacy Center, 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.

A 12-minute trailer can be viewed here. More information about the film is available here.
