Animal abuse is one of the forms of inhumanity that calls for attention to STOP it in its tracks. Animals are the citizens of this world, of this country, and they have their Rights to be protected. Here’s a story of Susie who was the beginning of the Legislature Against Animal Cruelty in North Carolina.

Susie’s Hope Story
Susie’s Hope follows the inspirational relationship between Donna Lawrence, the survivor of a pit bull attack, and Susie, a pit bull mix puppy found beaten, burned and left for dead in a park. Together, they learn to heal, love and forgive as they lead a historic effort to seek justice and protection for all animals.
Donna Lawrence, an expectant first-time mother and animal lover, is horribly mauled by an abandoned bit pull as she attempts to feed him. The accident causes Donna to both lose the pregnancy and her ability to have children.
As Donna begins to question God’s purpose for her, she discovers an answer: Susie. Donna finds the puppy on the edge of death, having survived the horror of being doused with lighter fluid and set on fire, her skin scorched and ears burned completely off.
Seeing many parallels between herself and the abused animal, Donna adopts the puppy and names her Susie, the name of the child she lost. Donna then partners with a local animal shelter to establish Susie’s Miracle Fund to pay for operations to save Susie’s life.
Donna discovers that Susie’s abuser will walk free because North Carolina laws only recognize animals as property. Determined to bring the abuser to justice, Donna and Susie rally the community for a stricter law, later called Susie’s Law, which instates a jail sentence for cruelty to animals.
A portion of the Susie’s Hope film’s proceeds goes to the American Humane Association, and 15% of the proceeds go to non-profit charities for animal welfare. Susie’s Hope non-profit organization works to educate and promote animal welfare through programs at schools, churches and hospitals, where Susie makes appearances as a certified Therapy Dog.
Susie’s Hope is more than just a movie! Susie’s case went on to bring about an important change in the law in the state of North Carolina! On December 1st 2010 “Susie’s Law” went into effect. We hope that “Susie’s Law” will give a voice to the voiceless and see that all neglected animals find justice and receive the care and love they deserve.
