Pictures of your rescue dog could be part of a new movie

As many of you already know, shelters around the country are overcrowded with thousands of pets looking for a home. That is especially true here in Houston, where every week adoptable animals are euthanized simply because there isn't enough shelter space.

I recently got the chance to chat with veterinarian and former Miss America Dr. Debbye Turner Bell and Best Friends Animal Society CEO Gregory Castle about their new campaign to help shelter animals...and they are looking for YOUR input!

"Long Live Pets" is the new program to education people about saving the lives of shelter pets and encourage pet adoption.

The first part of the campaign is the creation of a short film celebrating the first day in the new life of a rescued dog. And this is where YOU come in! If you have an adopted or rescued dog, the filmmakers want to hear from you.

You can upload pics of your rescued furkids by clicking here.

The film will be used to hopefully inspire others to adopt a pet, volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue group or make a donation. You can submit photos until March 31st.

To submit your pics, watch the short trailer. At the end, there are instructions and guidelines on choosing the right photo to fit the film's format.

You know I'm going to upload a picture of my Nanook!

The film airs in April.

You can watch more of my conversation with Dr. Debbye Turner Bell and Gregory Castle in the video player at the top of the page.
