Chicago Film's Industry Pet Rescue Holiday Pawty!

Saturday night, cast and crew members from all the shows, movies and commercials that film here in Chicago are coming together to raise money for CRISP: Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program. CRISP works with pet owners for free to help them stay with their pets, rather than having to give them up.36652555_1698701053547416_8707004396782747648_o

Director Tim Armstrong unleashed a pack of lovable dogs in a video invitation for a December 8 benefit party supporting the Chicagoland Rescue Intervention & Support Program (CRISP), an organization dedicated to helping Windy City pets and their families “stay healthy and stay together.”

The five-minute piece features testimonials from people who have rescued canines, as well as one cat owner, all appearing with their pets. It combines Armstrong’s love of animals and inspiration to “do something different for the holidays” with an idea that came from his long-time friend and Post Meridian cinematographer, Paolo Cascio.
