This two-CD set compiles over two hours of clips of animal-shelter dogs in "acute stress." It is anti-copyright and is being distributed free of charge. The purpose is to alert the public to the conditions inside a New York City Center for Animal Care and Control (CACC). Previously, Matthews put up posters pointing out that thousands of animals are killed monthly in these institutions. It was while photographing for the final poster that he made these recordings. This is a noble effort for a noble cause, and deserves to be heard.
