In Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures' “The Secret Life of Pets,” the real day for one bustling Manhattan apartment building starts after the humans leave for work and school. That’s when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine.

 

Meet the pets who populate this delightful, animated tale from the studio that brought audiences “Despicable Me” and “Minions.”

 

Max (Louis C.K.): A pampered Terrier mix, Max will need to find his courage before he can find his way home. He has an ideal relationship with his adopted owner, Katie...Until she brings home another rescue dog.
