Hearts will melt on August 25th with an exclusive pre-release documentary screening of LIFE IN THE DOGHOUSE, cast and crew meet and greet and fundraising shopping event that shines a light on rescue dogs.


LIFE IN THE DOGHOUSE, produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Ron Davis of the 2016 box office hit Harry & Snowman and HBO’s Miss You Can Do It, is an inspiring documentary of two men, Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, who started their own dog rescue and have saved over 10,000 dogs in the last 10 years. Danny and Ron were honored with the 2008 ASPCA Humanitarian Award for their unwavering personal sacrifice and unique approach to dog rescue & adoption during hurricane Katrina. Their story captures hearts, entertains, educates and will inspire millions to make the right choices when it comes to man’s best friend.
