An American Opera - The Greatest Pet Rescue Ever

The Rescue Party Tour, coming to Toronto.

K9 Rescue Me is pleased to be one of the sponsors of the Michigan based Rescue Party Tour which is having its Canadian premier showing in Toronto on July 23rd.

Tom McPhee's
An American Opera: The Greatest Pet Rescue Ever!, is a multi-award winning documentary which chronicles what happened during Hurricane Katrina when pet owners were forced to evacuate without their pets. An American Opera follows the pets, vets, owners, officials, rescuers, and adopters of animals as they try to remedy the situation, revealing that not everyone had the same goal of saving animals.

Tom is taking his Rescue Party Tour to 100 cities in the US and Canada this year, hoping to create a vibrant and original ‘friend-raiser’ event for the local rescue community. The Rescue Party Tour and K9 Rescue Me welcome all local animal organizations and rescue groups, vets and friends and family to watch and discuss this unique film.

More information on the movie, where it's going to be shown in Toronto and ticket purchases can be found here.

Thanks for the heads-up, Fred. I do not even want to imagine what would happen if my dogs bolted through the back gate, never mind something as catastrophic as Katrina.
