There’s a Kickstarter that’ll tug at your heartstrings. “Life in the Doghouse” follows two rescuers who have saved 10,000 dogs by bringing them into their home.

These guys are my heroes! Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta are two men who have literally let their lives go to the dogs. Their rescue, Danny and Ron’s Rescue took off beyond two kind-hearted men who wanted to help dogs when Hurricane Katrina left hundreds of dogs abandoned and desperate in 2005.

The men decided they could make a difference for those dogs, and that’s when they committed themselves to caring for injured and abused animals until they are ready to be adopted. The twist in their rescue is that they’ve sacrificed their own home as the shelter.

All dogs (currently over 71) are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, groomed and mostly, loved. All dogs are fed organic food and all have full access to all parts of the house, even if that means they want to sleep on the bed! Danny and Ron say that a dog living in a home and being loved as a pet is the best way to prepare it for adoption in its own new family, and so that’s what they do.

They met film director Ron Davis when he was looking to adopt a rescue dog himself, and Davis felt their inspiring story and saving of over 10,000 dogs was film-worthy.

The movie, Life in the Doghouse, will show the real story of Danny and Ron and what they do for dog rescue. Davis says he wants to create a film for families, but more, start a movement that will help rescue dogs all across the country. They are looking for funding for the final part of the film-making, editing and release, and after you watch the trailer, you can’t help but want to open your wallet and pour it at them.
