The film will be opening the Sonoma Film Festival on April 2, but, the media and other invited guests were treated to a special screening of it during the Global Pet Expo.

McEvilley, inspired by the question of “who rescued whom?,”  produced “La Sauvetage” at the request of Halo CEO Steve Marton.

In 2012, the Olate Dogs shot to stardom when they won the America’s Got Talent grand prize. These sweet, funny, talented dogs and their entertaining owners/handlers captured hearts across America.  But, there’s more to their story.

Many of the Olate Dogs are rescue dogs. In fact, family patriarch, Richard Olate, developed his act on the streets of his native Chile when he was a poor boy of just 12. He began rescuing stray dogs from the street and training them to be part of his amateur show.  He has worked hard for years to realize his dream of becoming a professional dog act.

Today, Richard and his son, Nicolas and wife, Rebecca, continue to save dogs from shelters and train them to become part of their professional troupe.

Those attending the screening were treated to a special live performance.
