A look inside Utah's "DogTown"
, animal sanctuary, one of the countries largest. "DogTown"
, a shelter for lost canine souls, is part of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, one of the largest no-kill animal facilities in the country. Located on 33,000 acres of southern Utah canyon country, the sanctuary hosts hundreds of dogs from all around the country, along with cats, horses, rabbits, goats and various other farm animals — about 1,500 animals at any one time.
For the animals that find a home in one of 12 lodging facilities, a staff of more than 60 oversees their every need — including medical attention, training and rehabilitation — with the eventual hope of placing as many as possible with loving owners. "DogTown"
is often the last hope for dogs requiring specialized or urgent medical attention or for abused and neglected animals. This is especially true for the group of dogs from Bad Newz Kennels. (Source:
