CGiii Comment

Attention dog lovers! Are you an admirer of absorbing, inspirational documentaries? Do you crave a positive story in a world turned upside down? If you answered yes to any of these questions then Life in the Doghouse is the flick for you.

Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta, a loving couple for 30 years, are the compassionate, committed owners of Danny & Ron’s Rescue. With huge hearts and magical Dr. Doolittle energy, these kindhearted men take care of anywhere from 50-70 dogs at once in their South Carolina home. In 2005, the couple rescued 600 dogs after Hurricane Katrina, and have since saved more than 9,000 abandoned dogs from being euthanized, and instead found them new forever homes. This fascinating film takes us behind the scenes of this well-oiled doggy domicile. Filmmaker Ron Davis (Pageant, Frameline32) does an expert job of capturing the day-to-day life of these everyday heroes as they run never-ending laundry cycles, prep custom food for hungry hounds, and provide personalized love for each and every animal. We also learn about two men who have faced intense life challenges and found strength in their commitment to each other—and the animals that have changed their lives.

You’ll come for the cute canines and stay for the intriguing insights into a vibrant relationship built on love, caring, and purpose. This doc will warm your heart and have you running home to hug your dog.
