Mutual Rescue

Kylie & Liza Film 

Video Production

As a result of the amazing response from our first Mutual Rescue story (Eric & Peety), Humane Society Silicon Valley asked us to create an ongoing series of online films. For Kylie & Liza, we developed the concept, wrote the script, travelled to Georgia to interview Kylie’s family, drew and animated custom illustrations, edited and finished the film. The film went viral and has been viewed more than 20MM times.


Created by The Humane Society of Silicon Valley (HSSV), Mutual Rescue is an initiative that aims to change the way people see animal welfare. By sharing stories about connecting a person with an animal, Mutual Rescue hopes to demonstrate that when you adopt from your local animal shelter, you’re not just enhancing an animal’s life—you’re also transforming a person’s life as well. The stories shared by everyday people through Mutual Rescue are testaments to the incredible impact that an animal and a person have on each other, and that “rescuing” isn’t in just one direction.

“Advocate Creative exemplifies what it means to collaborate to create impactful, moving stories that inspire and change how people look at the world. Their artistry and technical expertise are truly world class.”

Carol Novello, President for Humane Society Silicon Valley
