Join the Upper Peninsula Animal Shelter (UPAWS) for a screening of Redemption, a film about the No Kill revolution in America. Hosted by the Historic Vista Theater/PAAC.
UPAWS is proud to be featured in the film as one of the leading no-kill shelters in the nation. UPAWS Board President, Reva Laituri, speaks about UPAWS, our history and our no-kill mission.
The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
This is the story of animal sheltering, which was born of compassion and then lost its way. It is the story of the No Kill movement, which says we can and must stop the killing. It is about heroes and villains, betrayal and redemption. And it is about a social movement as noble and just as those that have come before. But most of all, it is a story about believing in the community and trusting in the power of compassion.
Please note: The film is safe for animal lovers to watch. There are no gratuitous images and while a couple of images may be difficult, it is ultimately an uplifting film about the hope, promise, and success of the No Kill philosophy.
UPAWS will have a Q&A session after the film. Learn more about UPAWS and our hopes for a new shelter.
