Illumination’s tenth feature, The Secret Life of Pets 2, is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 comedic blockbuster that had the biggest opening weekend ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.


Packed with Illumination’s signature irreverence and subversive humor, this new chapter explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?


Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.


Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip.


And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.


Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?


The Secret Life of Pets 2 is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, the visionary team behind Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and the Despicable Me and Minions franchise, and is written by returning Pets screenwriter Brian Lynch. The film is directed by returning filmmaker Chris Renaud, who also directed Illumination’s Despicable Me series and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. www.thesecretlifeofpets.com

Summer Safety Tips for Senior Pets

Summer is just around the corner! The temperatures are slowly rising, so it's important that you help your pet keep cool.  Remember the following to keep your pet comfortable:

Your pets sweat only through their paws. Keep them cool on car rides by cracking the window or turning on the air conditioner.

If the pavement is hot on your bare feet, it’s hot on their paws! Be careful where your pet steps.

Ensure that your pet has accessible fresh water at all times.

Pets with light-colored hair or thin hair on some parts of their body are susceptible to sunburn; break out the sunscreen if you plan to be outside for a long period of time.

Heatstroke is a definite medical emergency. If your pet shows signs such as high fever, staring, panting, rapid heartbeat, or vomiting, get them to the vet immediately.

NAPPS Educates Pet Parents on the Fatal Disease and Offers Tips for Protecting Pets

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., August 28, 2012—The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) has joined forces with the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) in an effort to raise awareness about the dangers of mosquito-borne diseases that can be harmful to the health of not only humans—but their animal companions as well.

Estimates claim that over 1 million dogs in the United States have been infected with the potentially fatal heartworm disease—an infection transmitted by the mosquito. Although the mosquito host is essential for the development of the immature worms that cause heartworm disease, it does not transmit them directly to the animal through the initial bite. The Immature worms leave the mosquito in a fluidic substance that is deposited on the dog’s skin. The worms then invade the hole in the skin made through the bite from the mosquito.

“This is a completely preventable disease that devastates pets,” said Joe Conlon, Technical Advisor of the AMCA. “Eliminating mosquitoes around your house in addition to using approved medications can ensure your pet remains a healthy companion.”

To lessen your pets’ exposure to mosquitoes, NAPPS and the AMCA suggest the following:

  • Get rid of water-holding containers (old tires, tin cans, buckets, drums and bottles) that have accumulated in your yard. Mosquitoes breed in standing water and will multiply wherever it’s available.
  • Cover trash containers to keep out rainwater
  • Keep drains, ditches and culverts free of weeds and trash so water drains properly
  • Change the water in bird baths and plant pots or drip trays at least once weekly
  • Repair leaky pipes and dripping outside faucets
  • Ensure door and window screens fit tightly, and repair any holes
  • Maintain short grass and well-trimmed shrubbery around the house, so adult mosquitoes will not hide in these places

“Heartworm preventatives are a proactive approach to keeping your dog’s health and wellness at its best,” said John D’Ariano, president of NAPPS. “Before administering any type of preventative medication, it’s important to always consult your veterinarian to determine what is best for your pet.”

About AMCA: Celebrating 75 years of protecting public health in 2010, the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) is an international not-for-profit public service association. With 1,600 members worldwide, AMCA services are provided mainly to public agencies and their principal staff members engaged in mosquito control, mosquito research and related activities. The membership extends to more than 50 countries, and includes individuals and public agencies engaged in mosquito control, mosquito research and related activities. Please visit AMCA online at www.mosquito.org and follow AMCA on Twitter @AMCAupdates.

About NAPPS: NAPPS is the only national non-profit trade association dedicated to serving the needs of professional pet sitters. The Association aims to help the pet owning public, those interested in pet sitting, and professionals engaged in the in-home pet care industry by fulfilling its vision statement, serving as “the most respected authority in professional pet sitting.” It does so by providing the tools and support to foster the success of its members. Additionally, pet parents can benefit from NAPPS’ free resources including a disaster preparedness guide, tips on how to select a pet sitter, nationwide referral service, and quarterly teleconferences aimed to educate the pet owning public.
