New Movie Promotes Adoption
Provide a back-up for a dog in need
Nuts the dog interrupts a home-pregnancy test by Zoe (Jennifer Lopez)--in their new movie.

JLo is back in a movie that promotes adoption for dogs and artificial insemination for cougars. After a baby-making hiatus in real-life, Jennifer Lopez returns to the screen this month in a rom-com about baby-making entitled The Back-up Plan. So why do we care at The Bark? Because Lopez plays Zoe, the owner of Hudson Mutts, a Greenwich Village pet boutique that sets a good standard by emphasizing adoption and eco-friendly pet care. It also helps that Hudson Mutts was inspired by an adorable, paralyzed Boston Terrier named Nuts (played by a trio of canine actors, who are real-life rescue dogs). We haven’t seen the movie, which opens on April 23, but we’re excited about efforts to promote adoption (with the film’s release) this weekend.

 
CBS Films and American Humane will host pet-adoption events—with free prescreening passes—at American Humane member shelters around the country including on April 17: Animal Rescue League of Boston and Pine Ridge Animal Center in Dedham, Mass., Denver Dumb Friends League, Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee, East Valley Animal Care Center in Van Nuys, San Diego Central Shelter, SPCA of Texas in Dallas, Houston SPCA, and Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Va. April 17 and 18: Humane Society of Missouri in Saint Louis, Chesterfield and Maryland Heights, Mo., and the Pennsylvania SPCA in Philadelphia. On April 18: Animal Friends in Pittsburgh, April 18.
