The Secret Life of Pets is a 2016 American 3D computer animated comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment.


Taking place in a Manhattan apartment building, Max's life as a favorite pet is turned upside down, when his owner brings home a sloppy Newfoundland named Duke. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of abandoned pets determined to take revenge on all happy-owned pets and their owners. Meanwhile a Pomeranian dog named Gidget assembles her own ragtag group of pets to track Max and Duke down.
