DEW Animal Kingdom was created in 1980 by Bob Miner; it eventually grew from farm animals to some more exotic critters.

Miner builds the facilities himself, and with the help of his wife, Julie. They met in 1994 when Julie became a volunteer at DEW.

"He found that he could communicate with people through the animals..."

"...It was a great connection for him back to people," Julie said.

Over 200 species of animals found a home in DEW, and Miner was able to find a new outlook on life.

Watch the full trailer for the documentary here, exclusively, before the movie airs at the Camden International Film Festival.
