Wagging Tales Documentary

A Tale of Tails Untold

Wagging Tales Documentary follows the lives of the dogs and humans at All Breed Rescue Vermont. The documentary explores what it is like to be not only a dog, but a dog in a shelter, and the humans who help get those dogs into their furever homes.
The idea for the documentary began in the spring of 2016 while on a train ride to her internship in London.  ​After several months of research during the summer of 2016, Scarlett began pre-production and initial filmming in the fall of 2016 with her team.

Scarlett is really enthusiastic about this project not only because she is an advocate for animals, but also because she has worked alongside All Breed Rescue for two years prior to this film.

She believes the film will bring to light the risks and rewards of running and working in a rescue, and also show what it is like to be a rescued animal.

The documentary has concluded filming and editing and has begun into the festival circuit.
