Local Rescues to benefit from Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation Sponsored Screening of Documentary

Written by FWD501cReporter

DFW Rescue Me, Humane Tomorrow and Straydog will benefit from a Andrew-Mennen Family Foundation sponsored pre-release screening of the documentary LIFE IN THE DOGHOUSE on August 25th.

The event includes a cast and crew meet and greet and fundraising shopping event that shines 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.

The family-friendly screenings, presented by The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation, will take place in various auditoriums at Studio Movie Grill in Plano (4721 West Park Blvd., Plano TX 75093) on Saturday, August 25th. The 5:00 PM showing is $25 for movie only. Movie times at 6:30 PM, 7:00 PM, and 7:30 PM are $70 and include a red carpet meet and greet, photo opportunity, and Q&A with the documentary filmmaker and the owners of the rescue and subjects of the film. Tickets are available to purchase online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/life-in-the-dog-house-tickets-47046248596. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit three local dog rescue non-profits: DFW Rescue Me, Humane Tomorrow, and Straydog (a no-kill shelter and sanctuary).

In addition to the screening, Neiman Marcus at The Shops at Willow Bend (2201 Dallas Parkway, Plano, TX 75093), will be hosting a day of pet adoption with the three dog rescues (DFW Rescue Me, Humane Tomorrow and Straydog) between 11 AM – 2 PM that same day, August 25th. Proceeds from desserts at Neiman Marcus Café will also benefit the dog rescues.
