At Farmer Al's farm, Al is having trouble keeping his animals, including Bettina, Garbie, Corny, and a few others, out of the barn so he can clean it. When Ryder and Marshall arrive, Al explains his plight, and Ryder suggests finding other places where the animals can spend the night until they can come back in the morning once Al finishes cleaning the barn up. Calling Robo-Dog to bring the PAW Patroller over, Ryder has the animals load up to take to their sleepover spots for the night.
After dropping Bettina off at Katie's Pet Parlor, Corny at City Hall, the adult sheep at Porter's Cafe, and Garbie with Cap'n Turbot at The Flounder, Ryder takes the piglets and lambs to the Lookout to spend the night there with the pups, who mention wanting to take the animals to see Ringmaster Raimundo's Circus as he would be in town tomorrow.
However, that night, growing homesick with wanting to go back to Farmer Al's, the lambs and piglets start to leave the Lookout to head home, but a thunderclap from an approaching storm startles them and causes them to run off in a panic. They are not the only ones, as the thunder from the approaching storm also scares off Bettina, the adult sheep, and Corny. Mayor Goodway calls Ryder to advise him of the situation, soon becoming a multi-call conversation as Mr. Porter and Katie call to report their animals having run off as well. Ryder assures them they will get the animals back and summons the pups to the Lookout.
Marshall crashes into the elevator on a star pillow, causing him to doze off because of how comfy it is, but the laughter from the other pups soon wake him up before they head topside. Once there, another thunderclap worries Skye as she realizes a storm is coming, but Ryder assures her they will find the animals before the storm hits. He assigns Skye to look for the animals with her searchlight, while having Chase assist on the ground with his megaphone. However, Cap'n Turbot calls in to reveal that the storm also spooked Garbie, who chewed through the mooring line for The Flounder and setting it adrift on the bay. Ryder assigns Zuma to help with retrieving Garbie and The Flounder. The team deploys and head out.
After retrieving Bettina first, they soon begin to recover the rest of the animals by luring them together with a hay bale for food for them, and Ryder and Zuma manage to prevent The Flounder from drifting into some rocks as Ryder puts his ATV on auto-pilot so he can steer the ship back to shore while Zuma tows his ATV back.
Once all the animals are together, another rumble of thunder and distant lightning warns the team that they are running out of time before the storm hits. Luckily, they spot Raimundo trying to set up his big top on the soccer field, but the storm winds are making it nearly impossible. Summoning Rocky, Rubble, and Marshall from the Lookout, the whole team is able to help Raimundo get the big top up just in time. Al arrives shortly thereafter with a wheelbarrow full of fresh hay, having been called earlier by Ryder, and as everyone heads inside, Rocky is the last to get in before the storm clouds finally open up and it starts to rain, much to his relief that no one got wet, not even him, before he closes the tent flaps behind him.
