It’s a dog eat dog world, indeed.

Actor and dog lover Zachary Quinto is set to star in a short film called Dog Eat Dog, about the challenges he faced while attempting to adopt a rescue pooch.

Quinto’s friend, filmmaker Sian Heder, is helming the project, because she thought it would be an entertaining way to shed light on the joy of owning a rescue dog. According to Heder, “Years ago, when Zach first tried to adopt a dog from the pound, he ended up in a rivalry with an unexpected competitor. Sometimes real life offers up gems, and in my mind, this story has always begged to be a little film.  I have decided it is best told as a dark and funny little fable about obsession, scheming and leaving things up to fate.”

Although Quinto did not end up adopting that particular pup, he is now the proud guardian of a rescue named Noah (who, according to Quinto, speaks with a British accent).

The film, which is shooting this month, is being filmed at the Humane Society and will feature shelter dogs. Quinto and Heder used kickstarter.com to fund the project, and although they exceeded their goal, they are still taking donations, since a percentage will go to the Humane Society. Donors of various levels will also receive rewards, including autographed DVDs, t-shirts, and credits in the film.

The kickstarter pledge closes at noon on Thursday, so if you want to help, act fast!
