Top 10 Best Movies Starring Animals
Celebrating National Pets in Film Day, we picked the best movies that star our furry companions.
June 19th is National Pets in Film Day, which was created to promote compassion for animals and celebrate the bond we have with our pets. There are plenty of classic 'dogs are a man's best friend movies' out there, but other pets have captured our hearts in films for decades.

Old Yeller steals the heart of the whole family on the homestead, and the audience too.
Saved by compassion and trying to fit in with the dogs who raised them, this pig learns how to herd sheep on the farm.

#4. Marley & Me
A playful film that shows all of the good and bad heartfelt moments throughout a dog's life.
#5. War Horse
Not just movies about dogs will make you emotional.
#6. Homeward Bound
I grew up with this Disney classic, starring a crew of both dogs and cats.
#7. Austin Powers Series
Although Mr. Bigglesworth, Dr. Evil's pet cat, is a minor character in this Mike Myers series - he steals the scene with every appearance.

Even a mischievous dog can help out in a big way.
