        Every stray animal sent to the animal shelters faces a 12-day mercy killing countdown if it is not adopted. Terrible surroundings of the shelter push a majority of animals inside to go toward the destination of their lives. The documentary, “Twelve Nights,” proposes the notion of “adopting instead of abandoning animals.” The director hopes to reduce the chance for animals to end up dying miserably in shelters. What’s more, it intends to help every animal find its way home. 
        The director says, “Most people entering the shelter for help were shocked by what they see. They couldn’t do anything but cry. It’s not shameful to cry when they witness the deteriorating situation of animals inside the shelters. But crying is of no help. It will be more helpful if they pull themselves together and do something practical for those animals.” The reality is revealed to the public in order to see everyone’s action in return. The executive producer as well as a famous writer, Giddens, added, “The tiny part of help will be the start of the bigger change. We hope there are angels among the audience, lighting up the darkness.” What can we do? We can share the concept on the social website networks like Facebook, Twitter, or Plurk. Either donating money to the related associations or adopting animals can be very beneficial. Also, rather than buy animals in pet shops, we can adopt stray animals to avoid the repeated occurrences of tragedies. There is still one thing we can do. If you keep pets, never desert them at will and treat them like your family members. 
        Hopefully, in the near future, the tragedies will never happen again.
