Set at the Best Friends Animal Society in southern Utah, DogTown is a Nationally Geographic-produced show that follows the training, rehabilitation and placement of the dogs who live at the Best Friends facility. Many of the dogs featured on "DogTown" have extreme behavioral issues, are severely under-socialized, are in need of medical care or are otherwise considered "unadoptable." Produced in a documentary style, DogTown shadows the trainers, behaviorists, veterinarians, staff and volunteers as they go through their day-to-day life at the Best Friends facility. Each episode typically features 3 dogs and showcases their entry into the program, their struggle to integrate, the care and training they've received and that dog's journey from "dog no one wanted" to adoptable and available as a forever friend. With the goal of securing adoptive homes for the dogs under their care, Best Friends Animal Society offers a safe, secure place for dogs to receive the care, attention and training they need while they wait for a forever family. While not every dog living at Best Friends ultimately finds a home, Best Friends is a no-kill facility and offers life-long sanctuary for the dogs living there. DogTown provides a way to get each dog on the air and to secure public attention and support for Best Friends' mission and goals. By showcasing the nitty-gritty, down and dirty details of rescue work and the dogs served, DogTown provides a behind-the-scenes look into the life of the staff, volunteers and dogs who are working on bettering themselves, making a difference, putting these "throwaway" dogs back on the right track and sending them home, forever, and for the final time. The glimpse into the real work behind canine rehabilitation is raw, real and easily viewable via DogTown.
