The town that’s really gone to the dogs!

A fun-loving, “gated” community, Dogtown is filled with tail-wagging, friendly neighbors. They come from all walks of life. Some are traumatized from abuse or neglect. Others are antisocial. Some simply have very special medical needs. But once they arrive at Dogtown, the healing begins. This is the place where a dog can just be a dog, running around and making friends. Along with top-of-the-line medical care, these dogs get all of the love and training they need to recover from their pasts so that they can move on to permanent, loving homes, which most do. For the rest, Dogtown is home for as long as they need it to be.
