Dogtown is part of the best friends adoption network. It was created in 1987 when so many of the dogs in shelters were being euthanized since they were unadoptable. They have over 500 dogs staying there and the property is over 90 acres. The staff there takes the time to train many of these dogs to become adoptable and for the ones who have been abused to the point of where being adopted is not a reality, the organization gives them a place that they can permanently call home. They are able to accomplish this with a staff and many selfless volunteers. They have taken in dogs from disasters such as hurricane Katrina as well as the thirty dogs who have been declared unadoptable from the Michael Vick dog fighting ring.
National Geographic has a special weekly program documenting the life of the dogs and the staff who loves them. You can catch it on Fridays in the US at 10PM Eastern/9PM Central. If you would like to know more, please visit them at http://www.bestfriends.org/dogtown. Thanks and have a good night.
