FOUR PAWS UP for “Le Sauvetage” — Halo’s Movie About Pet (and People) Rescue!

What a wild and crazy idea: a pet food company dedicated to pets in shelters and the people dedicated to rescuing them — finds a filmmaker who can celebrate the human-animal bond in the most delightful and profound way — thereby inspiring more people to adopt a pet!

And not only that, but “Le Sauvetage” will premiere at the Sonoma International Film Festival, where it is sure to inspire laughs and maybe even a few tears (of joy).

On my NPR show DOG TALK (and Kitties, Too!) this weekend, I will be interviewing the filmmaker Peter Mcevilley, who explains how he was chosen by Halo CEO Steve Marton, to make a short film celebrating the delights of rescuing a pet from a shelter.

The film features The Olate Dogs, some very talented and sassy little pooches who were winners of America’s Got Talent. Peter chose to make it in the style of “Amelie,” an unspoken “French” film that is even more touching and funny for the lack of dialogue.

This movie brings to light the bumper sticker that says “Shelter Pets: Who’s the One Being Rescued?” This heart-warming little movie shows adoption from the canine point of view — and will leave you scratching your head, wondering how your own dog feels about adopting you!

Here’s a link for the sneak preview of “Le Sauvetage” — share it with your friends (especially those that have not yet adopted a pet themselves!)
