Overview

DogTown's Stories Unfold at a truly miraculous place, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, the world's largest no-kill sanctuary. Armed with the mandate that “no creature is too damaged or insignificant to be cared for here,” Best Friends gives homeless dogs—often deemed unadoptable by other organizations—a second chance at life. Some dogs, like rescued fighter Georgia, bear deep emotional scars, while others, like bulldog-mix Wiggles, confront medical challenges. No matter what the dogs face, they find champions among the trainers, vets, and volunteers at Dogtown, who are dedicated to giving each dog a shot at a happier, healthier life.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Utah's Best Friends Animal Society, home of the National Geographic Channel series "Dogtown," is the nation's largest no-kill animal sanctuary, tending to some of the most unwanted, hard-to-rehabilitate dogs in animal rescue services. This collection of stories recounts and follows up on 15 of the most memorable dogs to appear on "Dogtown," including a grieving Weimaraner who needs a new family to love, an elderly Chow Chow with a mysterious neurological condition, and a shy pit bull suffering from popular misconceptions of breed brutality. The stories are told with much contribution from the passionate, patient staffers, and run alongside a charming collection of photos showcasing the dogs at their most expressive. Animal lovers will have a hard time putting this down, though dog lovers in particular should keep the tissues handy. 65 b&w photos.
