Zachary Quinto Stars In YouTube Short Film ‘Dog Eat Dog’ on Petsami Channel

“Dog Eat Dog,” a short film featuring “Star Trek” and “American Horror Story” actor Zachary Quinto, made its debut on Petsami today, a YouTube channel targeted towards animal lovers of all ages.

FishBowl Worldwide Media, the studio that owns the Petsami channel, partnered with Quinto’s Before The Door Pictures production in bringing this heartwarming rivalry of a man and a stranger obsessed with a dog at the local pound.

Quinto talked about the plot in a statement: “This story is very close to all of us, as we have all rescued or fostered dogs over the years. The story of the film is an exaggerated account of how I eventually found my rescue dog Noah, but it still reflects a bit of the reality I faced when I was looking to adopt a shelter dog.”

The “Dog Eat Dog” project has been nearly two years in the making. Quinto and director Sian Heder went on Kickstarter back in November 2011 to get viewers to fund the short film. They raised $30,204, more than four times their original goal of $7,500.

You can watch Quinto’s character try to get his favorite dog from the animal shelter in this quirky short film below:
