DOGS! WAITING TO BE LOVED

DOGS! Waiting to Be Loved is a live action feature film where dogs are the stars. Set in a rescue shelter, the movie is told from their point of view, and opens as the dogs are getting ready for their “big audition” – Adoption Day when folks tour the facility to pick out a pet. Will they be lucky, chosen to live in a real home and finally be loved, or will they end up as the next dog to be “put down” merely because no one cares? Featuring original songs I co-wrote with Broadway composer Norman Thalheimer and Grammy-winning songwriter/producer Charlie Midnight (Christina Aguilera, James Brown, Seal, Barbra Streisand), DOGS! offers an uplifting story the entire family will enjoy! In addition, 15% of profits are pledged to animal welfare charities to support the rescue and adoption of dogs.
