Not Every Hero Wears a Cape


“Not Every Hero Wears a Cape”.   P.E.T.S. (Providing Essentials for Tehama Shelter) wcelebrated local heroes and at least one furry companion.  


On January 19, 2019, at 2:00 pm, at the State Theatre For The Arts, located at 333 Oak Street, Red Bluff, CA 96080 (530-529-2787), P.E.T.S.hosted a meeting of the real-life heroes that live and work in the area prior to the one-time showing of the acclaimed animated film “Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero”.


P.E.T.S. ihosted the showing of the film, based on the life of Stubby the dog, in honor of the many veterans, military personnel, firefighters and law enforcement personnel who live in Tehama County. 


Sgt. Stubby is unlike anything else in feature animations.  It is about the unbreakable bond between a young soldier and a stray dog.  Sgt. Stubby saw frontline action in 17 battles, was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, and became America’s most decorated dog and a life member of The American Legion. 


The film’s historical accuracy has led to it being chosen as an official project of the United States World War One Centennial Commission and its French counterpart, La Mission du Centenaire 1914-18.  Additional endorsements include the, the National Infantry Museum Foundation, the National World War I Museum & Memorial, and the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes.


In addition,  Fun Academy Motion Pictures, producer of the Sgt. Stubby film, has partnered with P.E.T.S. to help them spread the message that adopted animals, like so many of us, are capable of amazing achievements if they are given a chance in life.


P.E.T.S. also aligned with the Tehama County Animal Care Center to honor and say thank you to our veterans, military personnel, firefighters and law enforcement personnel, by offering the discounted adoption programs - “Patriots and Pets” and “Everyone Needs A Hero” to them.


Stubby’s antics will be relevant to anyone who owns a dog.  Children will be able to relate to the story of a dog who stowed away and has amazing exploits.  Not only will it offer young filmgoers a hero to root for, but it will also offer valuable lessons about time-honored virtues such as bravery, patriotism, family, and duty. 


102 years ago, a stray dog went on to serve in the trenches during World War I, where he would earn his way into history for his heroic deeds.  Sgt. Stubby never asked to go to war.  Not many do.  Nevertheless, when he found himself there, he served with distinction with no promise of anything but a little companionship at the end of the day.  Today, we live among many men and women who serve in the trenches to protect us with no promise of anything.  Let us honor all of them.
