When it comes to fairy tale endings for lost dogs, Lady and the Tramp is it. It's undoubtedly for this reason that the SA Dog Rescue has chosen the film for a fundraiser.

SA Dog Rescue is a volunteer organisation focussed on re-homing pets that are at risk of euthanasia. The organisation receives dogs through word of mouth, council pounds, surrendered pets and social media contacts.

Lady and the Tramp is one of the world's first non-human rom-coms, released in June 1955 by Disney. It was the first animated feature to be shot in CinemaScope widescreen, making it a noteworthy release for film history, but it has a personal history behind it.

The concept was first developed by Joe Grant, a Disney story artist who noticed how his dog's behaviour changed when his wife had their first child. His idea in 1937 was nurtured by a number of workers in the Disney team for almost two decades. The baby who inspired the story would have been eighteen by the time it was released.

The film will be screened on 10 October at the Regal Theatre in Kensington Park. All funds raised go to SA Dog Rescue.
