Mitzi is a puppy who wakens up one morning to find herself in a cage, surrounded by many other dogs also, like her, in cages, and she wonders why. The other dogs explain that when dogs are not wanted by people they are sent to an Adopt-a-Pet Kennel: but, there is always hope that some pet-loving person will drop by. After many days Mitzi feels abandoned and without hope. Then, one day a father and his little son arrive. When the boy looks into Mitzi's eyes and Mitzi looks back there is that moment of magic. And life begins again.
