Following the release of Life in the Doghouse on Netflix on June 1, Danny & Ron’s Rescue has received an unprecedented amount of enthusiasm for sharing the inspiring story of part-time Wellington residents Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta’s passion for dog rescue in the feature documentary.
With the help of the film, directed by Ron Davis, produced by Docutainment Films and distributed by FilmRise, the story of their commitment to helping dogs is reaching across the globe.
The film, released via FilmRise’s Theatrical on Demand platform last year, chronicles the highs and lows of the couple’s rescue efforts as they approach 10,000 dogs saved over a decade after the founding of Danny & Ron’s Rescue.
The unique operation run out of their South Carolina home has continued to draw dog lovers and activists to their important work, influencing communities everywhere to be responsible pet owners.
Prior to being released on Netflix, Robertshaw and Danta’s heartwarming story was featured on The Today Show, the CBS Evening News, Fox News and the Hallmark Channel.
The team at Danny & Ron’s Rescue is thrilled with the additional reach that Netflix has given them.
“We are blown away and humbled by the messages and support we have received since the release of Life in the Doghouse on Netflix,” Danta said. “This platform has given us the opportunity to not only reach more people in our country, but the entire world. It is our hope that communicating the importance of adoption, as well as spaying and neutering, will have far reaching effects on communities and dogs everywhere.”
Driven by passion and on a mission to speak for helpless animals that have no voice, Robertshaw and Danta have showed no signs of slowing since embarking on their journey with the rescue in 2005.
All of the filmmaker’s net proceeds from Life in the Doghouse are being donated to dog rescue efforts around the country.
