FAMILY FILM THAT HELPED SAVE 150+ ANIMALS NOW AVAILABLE ON ITUNES
Continues to Give Back to Animal Rescue Community
Hollywood, CA (July 26th, 2016) — Busted Buggy Entertainment is proud to announce Rescue Dogs, a first of its kind family film starring real rescue animals, is now available for pre-order on iTunes. Throughout its filming and release, the producers and team behind the film have continued to give back to the animal rescue community.
The children-friendly, talking-dog film released in select theaters across the country in April and not only entertained, but also made a difference. Filmmakers partnered with 23 animal rescue organizations to host adoption events in each city during opening weekend, with a portion of the producers’ box office from the theatrical run benefiting the charity associated with each theater.
As a result of the film’s theatrical release and corresponding animal adoption events across the country, over 150 animals found their forever homes.
One of the partnering rescue organizations, Animal Welfare League (AWL) in Chicago, Illinois, had 51 animal adoptions in two days! Twenty cats, 30 dogs and one rabbit went home with new, loving families. Lady, a dog “long-timer” at AWL, was one of the 30 dogs that found the perfect forever family.
Filmmakers also worked with charities to select specific available dogs to serve as film “mascots.” The ultimate goal of highlighting “mascot” dogs was to find forever homes for each of them while bringing light to the countless shelter animals that are often overlooked.
In Utah, a special needs dog named Fynlee was featured as the Rescue Dogs mascot for Salt Lake City. Fynlee had been saved by Rescue Rovers, and a few weeks following the movie’s release she was adopted by a senior couple. To date, five Rescue Dogs mascots have been adopted.
Now, the Rescue Dogs team has set out to save even more animals through the film’s itunes sales promotion with animal rescues. Filmmakers have selected prominent nonprofit animal rescue organizations to receive 50 percent of proceeds from the movie’s iTunes sales.
Rescue Dogs the Movie helped 150+ animals find their forever families. Now’s the chance to bring home Charger, Hambone, and the rest of the Rescue Dogs crew by pre-ordering the video today on iTunes and supporting nonprofit animal rescue organizations!
About the Movie:
Rescue Dogs is the story of Tracy and his rescue dog Charger as they 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 meet the bills, manage the kitchen (where Charger helps cook!) and still find time to fall in love with a beautiful dancer named Bridgette. Through a comedy of errors and mishaps, the humans discover they 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.

If you know me in real life, then you already know I love My Neighbor Totoro, and Spirited Away. I also love fun things for my feet, so of course I was thrilled to get a chance to review these slippers. They are the adorable Soot Sprites that make an appearance in both films.
They are cute, they are comfy, and of course, they will make you smile when you look down at your feet. The slippers come from the site BunnySlippers.com, but don’t let the name fool you. Bunny slippers abound, but there are so many other fun options there too, including the Monty Python bunnies! And of course, the site has so many fun options for animal lovers we just had to share our favorites with you. Not only are they great slippers, but I think they would be a fun and unique gift for all occasions (especially the animal feet)!
Which are your favorite? Do you like wearing slippers? Do your pets like to attack your feet if you have slippers on? Our bird used to like playing with a pair of flamingo slippers I have.
