Last Chance Highway

Last Chance Highway

The clock is ticking for millions of animals across the country. Shelters are over-crowded, many pet owners don't spay or neuter their animals, and there just aren't enough resources to go around. Still, thanks to some amazing people who have dedicated themselves to racing against that clock, animals are saved every day. Hundreds are rescued every week, even thousands a year, and most people don't even know it's happening.

This summer, Animal Planet will change that with "Last Chance Highway", an eight-part series that focuses on the monumental mission of a dedicated handful of rescuers. The stakes are high for Shelly Bookwalter and Kyle Peterson and for the soon-to-be-euthanized dogs they are fighting to save.

Each week, they organize a band of volunteers to take part in a unique mobile adoption campaign. Shelly leads an effort to find homes for strays and unclaimed shelter dogs. And every week, Kyle and crew member, Lucas, climb aboard their big rig to transport more than 150 dogs thousands of miles to meet their new families. It's an exhausting ritual but one that finds homes for more than six thousand pets every year. (Source: Animal Planet)
