A dog is reincarnated as different breeds belonging to various owners and eventually re-encounters the man who once rescued him as a young boy in 1962.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) will be attending this event to share information about adoptable animals at their nearby adoption center as well as information about pet care and opportunities to volunteer.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend their anti-cruelty mission across the country, they are recognized as a national animal welfare organization.
