DogTown: Friends in Need
After Hurricane Gustav hits New Orleans, animal care operations manager Jeff Popowich and the Best Friends team drive more than 1,600 miles for an animal rescue operation in the "Big Easy." Jeff rescues several dogs, including Rose, an emaciated pit bull who needs immediate medical attention to survive. Meanwhile, back at the shelter, Sophie, a sheltie mix struggling with aggression, learns to love her caretakers.
