A terrier named Max luxuriously lives with his owner Katie in Manhattan, hanging out with tabby cat Chloe, pug Mel, dachshund Buddy, and budgerigar Sweet Pea. One day, Katie adopts Duke, a large and shaggy dog from the pound, leaving Max jealous because of her larger focus on Duke. Enraged by Max’s attitude towards him, Duke tricks Max into travelling far into the city, and they are attacked by a feral cat gang in an alley, led by Sphynx cat Ozone. The cats remove Max and Duke’s collars and the dogs are caught by Animal Control. Duke fears that he will be put down if he goes back to the pound…..

Gidget, a white Pomeranian who has a crush on Max, discovers that Max is missing and recruits a vicious red-tailed hawk, Tiberius, to locate him. After looking over the city for Max, Tiberius returns to Gidget with Ozone, who directs Gidget and Tiberius to the sewers after being forced to by Gidget. Gidget and Tiberius then recruit Mel, Buddy, Chloe, guinea pigNorman, and Sweet Pea as they trek across Manhattan in search of Max and Duke, led by the elderly, paralyzed basset hound Pops. The group encounters Snowball, who vows to kill them, too. Most of the rescue group escapes but Norman is captured.

Max and Duke begin to get along with each other. They raid a sausage factory after getting hungry. Duke tells Max about his elderly previous owner Fred. He adopted Duke as a puppy and raised him adoringly in Brooklyn, but Duke got lost chasing a butterfly one day and was taken by Animal Control, but Fred never came looking for him. Although Duke isn’t sure if Fred will reconcile with him, Max convinces him that Fred will and convinces Duke to find him. They arrive at his house, but learn from a resident cat named Reginald that Fred has died. Resentful and angst-ridden, Duke accuses Max of attempting to get rid of him and barks at the new homeowners who call Animal Control. Max is caught again but is then saved by Duke, who gets caught in return.

While plotting to rescue Duke as he follows the Animal Control van, Max is attacked by Snowball and his comrades. However, Snowball’s gang are captured, and Snowball decides to ally with Max to rescue them. They drive and crash a city bus into the van on theBrooklyn Bridge, stopping traffic. The Flushed Pets appear and, unaware of Max and Snowball’s alliance, corner Max, but Gidget and her team save him. The van rolls away; the captured Flushed Pets escape, but the van dives in the East River with Max and Duke inside. Max tries to retrieve the keys, but they float away. Snowball jumps off the bridge and brings Max the spare keys. Max rescues Duke and they make it out before the van sinks.

The entire group return to the apartment by taxi. Max expresses his appreciation and infatuation toward Gidget, who returns with affection. Snowball and the Flushed Pets then come up with a new plan to annihilate all humans, but Snowball is then adopted by a little girl. At first, Snowball resists, but gives in to her sweetness and lets himself be adopted. The remaining Flushed Pets return to the sewers. The other pets return and embrace their owners, and Max and Duke finally reunite with Katie, sparking a true friendship.
