Four Years.

Four Thousand Dogs.

An incredible true story of rescue and redemption.

In a forgotten land where lives are lost, souls are sometimes found. When Keith Benning accepted the job as a deputy in a small North Dakota county, he had no idea he was about to face the biggest challenge of his life. Four years and four thousand dogs later, he lost his marriage, a fellow officer and nearly his own life.

By rescuing seventy starving and unwanted animals out of his garage each month, Keith and a small team of volunteers have changed the world for thousands of dogs, and tens of thousands more to come.

Woven with riveting and inspiring real-life rescue stories, Rescue Matters tells a larger tale of tragedy-meets-redemption. A gripping account of how a garage rescue grew into a mighty force that inspired a nation.

C.J. English shares her personal experience inside the emotional and bittersweet world of dog rescue, delivering a heart-wrenching and deeply moving story that has much to teach us about responsibility and compassion.

Rescue Matters is alive with meaning and purpose, proving that it doesn't take a law or government to change the world, all it takes is a few people trying to make a difference to start a revolution.

Not just for dog lovers, but for anyone inspired by the compassion of humans and the resilience of the animals who forgive them.

TMAR rescues 1000+ animals each year. Help support our long term goal to get out of Keith's garage and build our very own shelter!
