Gordon Shell, The Dog Fighter

10 Oct

Hand4Paws really appreciates the work being done by Gordon Shell, MMA fighter turned fighter to help dogs. His documentary, The Dog Fighter, is scheduled to be released next month, and this great film needs more exposure.   We are asking our friends who care about dogs to please contact CNN and Ellen DeGeneres, asking if they would interview Gordon Shell.

Gordon Shell’s story was shared on the iReport site for CNN. Although it has over 1,000 views and recommendations, it was never chosen to be aired.

You’ll see what we mean when you read more about Gordon Shell and watch the trailer for The Dog Fighter:  http://www.examiner.com/article/mma-fighter-gordon-shell-begins-a-new-fight-saving-detroit-s-dogs

Would you please help Gordon Shell (and dogs everywhere!) by sending an email to CNN and Ellen via their online contact forms:

Thank you, and please share this!  When we work together, we can do amazing things!!

Here is a sample letter:

Please consider interviewing Gordon Shell.  His documentary The Dog Fighter is scheduled to be released in November 2012.

The Dog Fighter is the inspiring true story of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Gordon Shell. When a medical condition threatened to end his career as a fighter, Shell didn’t back down, but continued to fight. This time, however, the fight was for a different cause: the homeless and abused dogs of Detroit. The documentary covers the transition Shell made from MMA fighter to The Dog Fighter. Shell states “I started pushing harder since I’m a fighter and work with fighters. I think we have a bigger voice to go after the bad guys.”

His is a great human interest story.  So many people are interested in the things Gordon Shell is doing for all animals.  When his story was published in the online article below, it went viral. Although his documentary depicts what happens in Detroit, it portrays the reality of many cities across the United States as well as the whole world. He is a great human being working for a great cause, helping man’s best friend.

He is especially against dog fighting.  In his own words: “I’m fighting. So the dogs don’t have to.”

Thank you for your consideration.
