Saving Angelo is a 2007 Dominic Scott Kay-directed short film based on the true events of a white boxer that he and his family rescued in 2003. All promotions and earnings wents to animal charity projects.

In January 2007, Kay filed a lawsuit claiming that producer Conroy Kanter "unfairly demanded creative control and distribution rights" for the film.[1] The suit was settled out of court with Kay receiving "full ownership and control" of the film, along with a $20,000 donation to Crusades for Animals.[2]
