Trespassing on the property, they set up a residence for abandoned dogs that they have freed from the dog pound or rescued off the street. Some moments of peril for dogs and children are shown. The script contains brief excrement jokes, a handful of profanities and some scatological slang along with other infrequent crude humor. A man is assaulted by a teen and kicked in a groin.
