When other humane organizations insisted that Michael Vick's dogs could never be rehabilitated after their brutal treatment at Bad Newz Kennels, Best Friends Animal Shelter in Kanab, Utah disagreed. They took on the task of retraining a pack of mistreated and abused pit bulls, confident that their trainers would have the methods and the patience to give them a second chance to be adopted as pets. Even if that failed, the no-kill shelter was sure it could do enough to keep them in their sanctuary near Zion National Park. Sherry Woodard, who heads the unique Dogtown shelter, explains how it was done.
