Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs
In Cinemas across the UK from Friday, 30 March.
Wes Anderson’s lovingly crafted film sees thousands of dogs abandoned, through no fault of their own, on a desolate island of trash - the Isle of Dogs.
Unloved and unwanted, life appears hopeless for this band of abandoned mutts.
Cue our hero. 12-year-old Atari who, unable to accept the loss of his canine companion Spots, travels to the desolate island in a desperate rescue attempt.
Sympathetic to Atari’s plight, a small pack of abandoned dogs, including the gruff stray Chief (Bryan Cranston) join him on his epic journey to be reunited with his lost friend.
Highlighting issues faced by dogs today
Isle of Dogs is imaginative, inspired and futuristic. Yet it also helps to highlight a number of issues faced by dogs in England and Wales today.
Thousands of dogs are abandoned every year, but they aren’t exiled to an island. Instead they find their way into animal centres. This puts huge pressure on us and other animal welfare charities. You can help.
Rehome a rescued dog
There are thousands of dogs in our care waiting for a forever home. Rescue dogs are unique, resourceful, brave and, most of all, great companions.
Be a hero for your dog
The behaviour of dogs is often misunderstood, even by the most caring dog owners. Whilst this can sometimes end in abandonment, more often dogs aren’t as happy as they can be simply because their behaviour isn’t understood.
Create a world that’s kinder to animals
It takes all us of to create a world that is kinder to animals. From campaigning to improve animal welfare laws to helping others understand why dogs behave the way they do.
