“Strays” Movie: Meet the Pets of the Cast!

Of course, the team at Celebrity Pets loves all pet-related movies. With the infinite number of remakes and reboots these days, we wonder why they don’t just make dog versions of every fan-favorite film and make a billion dollars (Doggy Potter and the Sorcerer’s Bone, anyone?). But pet lovers have a treat hitting theaters in August 2023: An original pet-centric movie with Strays, a comedy about a pack of crass canines voiced by a cast of beloved comedic actors! Let’s take a look at both the human cast and their IRL pets, along with the doggos that appear in the film. And if we didn’t include an actor below, they sadly have no pets at home.
