The times for the live adoption event are 12pm-6pm Saturday and Sunday (April 2-3) right outside of the theater. We'll have live animals, a red carpet, and a step and repeat. The Animal Rescue League will also be there to talk adoption and answer questions about their organization. Busted Buggy Entertainment’s first-of-its-kind family film actually stars real rescue animals. Busted Buggy Entertainment is embarking on a unique release plan for its family film “Rescue Dogs,” which is slated to bound into theaters early April. The company is teaming up with 20 animal rescues to host animal adoption events during opening weekend, it was announced Friday by Busted Buggy founder Courtney Daniels.
"Rescue Dogs" is a first-of-its-kind family movie that actually stars real rescue dogs (and a rescue cat and a rescue hamster) as the lead characters.
Audiences will be treated to Live Adoption events outside of theaters in hopes of raising both money and awareness, and adopting out a number of rescue animals.
Among the renowned rescues partnering with “Rescue Dogs” is Animal Rescue League Shelter and Wildlife Center. “We here at Animal Rescue League are so enthused to be a part of ‘Rescue Dogs!’ With the addition of the adoption events, we hope several homeless pets find their fur-ever home. The number of homeless animals in America is unnerving. Highlighting rescue animals in ‘Rescue Dogs’ will bring awareness to the thousands of animals needing a home.” the organization said in a statement.
“We are so excited to partner with these extraordinary rescue organizations across the nation,” said Daniels. “The amount of time these organizations put into saving animals lives is amazing and we could not be happier to help them in their efforts.”
“Rescue Dogs” is the story of Tracy and his rescue dog Charger who have to foil the plans of an evil businessman who wants to knock over their beach restaurant in order to build his golf course. With help from his brother, Tracy tries to pay the bills, manage the kitchen (where Charger helps cook) and still find time to fall in love with a beautiful dancer named Bridget. Through a comedy of errors and mishaps, the humans find that they themselves can be rescued by their very own rescue animals.
The film was written by Jordan Rawlins and MJ Anderson, and co-directed by Anderson and Haik Katsikian.
