You know animals cannot talk but people like Alison Parker and Sally Meyer are making a difference in creating awareness and educating others that Ferrets are not bad animals, they are pets too, like cats, birds or dogs. By giving back a percentage of the movie to legalize Ferrets in California is something to say Thank you for giving voice to the ones the cannot speak.” Mr. Escobar concluded “Here at Diversity News Publications will do our best to help with the project and we will utilize all our media assets and resources to get the word out by reaching to our readers, partners, affiliates, family and friends.”

Synopsis: 
Max Jones (Connor Stanhope) is a teenage boy with a problem. He’s moving to California with his father. Unfortunately, Digger, his furry best friend, won’t be able to come along because ferrets are illegal in the Golden State.  When Max finds a way to sneak Digger across the border, he thinks his troubles are over.  But the fun and games have just begun!  Max meets and joins forces with The Ferret Squad, a group of quirky kids who spend their summer days rescuing and fostering illegal ferrets. When Animal Control plans to destroy some confiscated ferrets, Max and the Ferret Squad go on a desperate mission to save the poor animals by transporting them across the border with the law and their parents in hot pursuit.
