About the Author

Best Friends Animal Society is a non-profit, tax-exempt charity that was started by Michael Mountain and a group of friends, who sought to create a no-kill haven for rescued animals. The pilot program expanded and Best Friends was established in the early 1980s. They have great success in rescuing and rehabilitating animals and finding homes for them. The sanctuary is located at Angel Canyon in Southern Utah, a 3,700 acre ranch at the heart of the famous Golden Circle of national parks, close to Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon s North Rim, Bryce Canyon, and Lake Powell. A wide range of animals, including dogs, cats, birds, horses, rabbits, goats, and farm animals are cared for at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The organization reaches across the nation, helping groups, individual people, and entire communities to set up spay/neuter, shelter, foster, and adoption programs in their own neighborhoods, cities and states.

This book shares information about Dogtown at Best Friends Sanctuary. It is an uplifting book that shows what
people are doing to help dogs with behavior problems, health issues to become whole and hopefully find a
forever home. With all the news about the abuse of animals, it is encouraging to read about people working
to be the solution. While we cannot all start a program as expansive at Dogtown, we can at least support
such facilities so they can continue to rescue dogs that people have abused or abandoned.Dogtown: A Sanctuary for Rescued Dogs

Format: Hardcover
For a species dubbed Man's best friend, canines are sadly horribly abused by their so-called friends. "Dogtown: A Sanctuary for Rescued Dogs" is the story of the country's biggest no kill animal sanctuary. The sanctuary focuses on keeping animals in loving homes and off the streets and away from cruel masters. An uplifting tale that dog lovers will relish, "Dogtown" is enhanced with more than eighty full color photos, earning it an enthusiastic recommendation.

Lots of great photos and stories of dogs who were given a second chance for a happy life by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. The work they do to rescue, rehabilitate and literally save dogs is incredible. If you like dog stories with happy endings, this is one book that will give you what you're looking for!

Format: Hardcover
This is a heartwarming, uplifting book about a sanctuary for dogs in Kanab, Utah. Dogtown workers go out on nationwide runs to rescue abandoned and abused dogs; dogs from closed puppy mills and dogs from disasters such as Hurricane Katrina.

The efforts of these humane and dedicated workers have stretched worldwide. In 2006, Dogtown workers airlifted many dogs from Lebanon who had been left to fend for themselves after a war had broken out.

This humane and compassionate facility for dogs will certainly touch all hearts. Older animals who are less likely to be adopted are housed in a separate area for senior pets; nationwide adoptions are held and workers continue their tireless efforts to save and in some cases rehabilitate dogs with special needs.

Hats off to Dogtown!

I got this book for a co-worker who is an animal lover and it was a hit. Nice color pictures, a nice story about the rescue of these dogs and the price made for a quality gift for around $10. I recommend it to anyone who loves animals and I also bought the cat book- The Cats of Kittyville for some cat lovers I know. Both make great gifts.
