The effects of abuse, poverty, racism, homophobia, sexism, and desperation make it nearly impossible for Keema to open her heart. That is, until a chance encounter with a dog changes the trajectory of her life. By walking rescue dogs and connecting with their humans, Keema discovers for the first time what love is.
Despite all the trauma that Keema describes and the obvious pain still so close to the surface, this film is upbeat without being inauthentic. The series of doggy cameos at the end strikes a perfect balance—shows the mutual of the rescues.”
Cats and dogs tend to be memorable, no matter what film they’re in. But the animals appearing in these movies [at the NY Cat and Dog Film Festivals] aren’t the typical Hollywood scene stealers. Some are old, some are strays, and some have saved the humans in their lives as much as the humans have saved them….Mutual Rescue’s ‘Keema & Her Pack’ features a young New York City dog walker whose job has helped her overcome a traumatic past.”

For those who have loved and lost a companion animal, Mutual Rescue created two Memorial Montages of photography, poetry, and music—timeless messages from the spirits of a dog and cat.
