DogTown: Road to Recovery

DogTown: Road to Recovery
Vivian, a Katrina survivor, is terrified of strangers and exhibits behaviors that are similar to post-traumatic stress in humans. Tooy was rescued from a hoarder. He was found in desperate need of medical attention, with an infected tumor. Tashi can barely walk and will require two complicated surgeries and months of 24-hour care. Many shelters lack the resources to rehabilitate dogs like these; however, DogTown takes on the challenges in the Road to Recovery.
