When Rue’s Furever mom drops a bombshell—they’re moving across the country!— Rue is one devastated dog. Even Rue’s Fairy Dogmother can’t change her mind about moving to Hollywoof, especially when Rue learns she’s moving in with a new step-dad and his perfect puppy named Jack. A family she never bargained for, a place that doesn’t feel like home… What’s a dog to do, but run away? Alone and confused on the streets of LA, Rue befriends a self-assured cat named Moo Kitty before eventually returning to a very worried family… but not before realizing that Furever Home is a place in your heart with the family you choose! Based on a true story, this family-friendly pop musical is told by a colorful cast of puppets and people— fun for kids and kids at heart (think: Disney/Pixar film). For more, find us @rescuerue !
