Pets to the Rescue


Siblings Peter and Shannon are always getting on each other’s nerves. This morning’s fight has landed them stuck at home, grounded, while their parents head to town. Their punishment gets a little more interesting, though, when a trio of crooks crash their getaway car near Peter and Shannon’s house and hold the kids captive. Luckily for them, they aren’t home alone. Now their crazy pets—dog Milly, goat Colonel, pig Josephina and duck Francois—are ready to come to their rescue!

Dove Review

The pets in this film would be nice to have on your side if you ever get into trouble.

In order to save their farm, a father and mother go to the bank and leave their kids at home with their oldest thirteen year-old daughter that watches her younger brother. But they are not alone, they have pets on their side including a pig, a goat, a rooster, a duck and a dog. The film is kind of a “Home Alone” movie with animals. The animals protect the home as crooks break in but in this case it is the younger brother who works against the crooks with the animals’ help.

We are pleased to award our Dove Seal to this movie for ages twelve and above.
