Each collection is about an hour long. And good for every age group (except really small kids who might not understand some of it). Feel good knowing that 100% of the proceeds of your streaming fee are benefiting the animal welfare efforts of the non-profit Michelson Found Animals.


Dog Lovers Rejoice!

Tracie Hotchner, the Founder & Director of both festivals, has put together two collections of dog films that haven’t been seen in theaters. The films in NEW YORK, NEW YORK and WONDERFULLY WACKY were not in the programs seen on the big screen. Tracie pulled together all the animated films from every year of the NY Dog Film Festival and made ANIMATED CANINES, one delightful collection for all members of the family.


100% Goes to Animal Welfare

Michelson Found Animals receives 100% of the net proceeds from every download, which means watching these film collections directly benefits animals.  Michelson Found Animals is a national animal welfare organization that fits perfectly with the intention of the film Festivals because of their belief that “pets and people are better together”.Their work focuses on improving the lives of pets and their people in many ways, including:

  • ADOPTIONS that connect pets to forever families.

  • A FREE NATIONAL MICROCHIP REGISTRY that helps lost pets get home.

  • GRANTS that empower local organizations to keep pets out of shelters.

  • RESOURCES, information and other support for pet people.


Animated Canines

This series of brilliantly artful animated films depict the dogs in our lives in a wide variety of styles and ways. (Think of these as the kind of animated films that get nominated for Oscars, not Saturday morning kids’ cartoons!)


New York, New York

Every film in this collection is set in New York City and celebrates the special ways that dogs and people share urban life.


Wonderfully Wacky

These films are just a little “off center,” with a delightfully offbeat tone or theme. They will surprise and delight you and even leave you pleasantly perplexed!


Enjoy! Come back and download more collections soon!


These films are free of physical or verbal abuse toward people or animals. The only tears you might shed would be tears of joy for happy endings. The programs are designed for adult audiences but can be enjoyed by all members of the family, including mature children.
