Rita Rudner Stars in Rescue Waggin’: Tales from the Road

RitaFamous for tickling funny bones, comedienne Rita Rudner touches hearts as she remembers Bonkers, the rescue Rover who brought laughter into her life, in the latest episode of Rescue Waggin: Tales from the Road.

The funny lady’s loving reminiscence of her own dog leads to an introduction to the fourth of eight webisodes which chronicle the quest of homeless canines who have traveled 600 miles to put smiles on the faces of forever pet parents. In this episode, the pups are in the home stretch of their journey as they reach their destination– Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley, Minnesota.

Rudner is the fourth high-profile pal to those with paws to make an appearance in the PetSmart Charities web series. Other stars who stepped in front of the camera for the cause include actress Kristen Bell, So You Think You Can Dance judge Adam Shankman and rocker Bret Michaels.

Produced by DakotaKid Media, the production company owned by actor Josh Duhamel (who also narrates the webisodes), Rescue Waggin’: Tales from the Road shines a spotlight on the PetSmart Charities Rescue Waggin’ program, which has saved the lives of 70,000 companion animals since its start in 2004.
