Tessa is desperate to find a new building for her no kill shelter, being forced out by an incoming Starbucks. She is at the mercy of the disapproving city council, is confronted with her high school sweetheart moving back home, and all the while is mentoring teenage volunteer and budding vet Molly Mattie, who has a penchant for pop culture, and thinks Tessa is the greatest thing since sliced bread. At the end of her rope, Tessa is left with approaching her estranged father for financial assistance to keep the rescue open to save the dogs, and ultimately, herself.
