  1. I think Dogtown is a great place for homeless animals and to be so lucky to be located in the beautiful southwest. The southwest is one of my favorite places to visit.
    Getting an opportunity to spend time with the animals and staff is a once in a life time experience. I personally have adopted two dogs and a cat from humane societies. I’m also sucker for stray animals. In 2003, I took in a stray dog with his female feline companion who showed up at my door. They are both with me today, happy to be loved and taken care of.

  2. I am so excited that there is a chance for me and my daughter to visit dogtown. It is my daughter’s intention to work there in the near future. Having the opportunity to be there and actually see how things are done would be a dream come true for her and me. I am moving to AZ in 1 year from now so we will be very close to dogtown. Maggie loves animals and has said several times that she wants to have a no kill shelter. Then I saw the show on tv and she cried with anticipation when I told her about it. How do I find out if I win?

  3. I’m a 35 year old dog groomer. Dogs have always been in my life! I even provide free grooming services to the city pound & the St. Tammy Parish pound as well. When I started watching DOGTOWN, it warmed my heart to see other people, besides myself, care as much as myself! You guys are making a differents! I was also glad you had this sweapstakes, gives me a chance (if I won) to see you guys in action!

  4. I think its a great idea it gives people a chance to see the wonderful things that Dog Town and Best Friends does for all animals that have been given a second chance at life after what they have been thru.

  5. We enjoy your show and are thankful for all the good you do for animals who have been neglected or abandoned.

  6. Thank you for a chance to win a trip to DOGTOWN I have been trying to find a way to get to come visit. I even check your web site to see if a job at Dog Town might be right for me. Thank you for the great things you do.

  7. This would be great. Of course i hope to be the lucky winner.I have thought so much about getting a job at dog town that to go for 4 days is a dream come true. Wish me luck Kathy

  8. This would be such a great experience! I am a canine education instructor as well as a board member of our local shelter! I would LOVE to come out and see TRUE EXPERTS at work, and hopefully learn something valuable. I am truely a “dog mom” with 3 of my own, and dearly love all dogs. Really enjoy the show, and thankx for this opportunity to come see you in person. HOPE I WIN!!! thanx

  9. Would love to come and enjoy the 4 days at DOGTOWN! I love dogs and everything about them. I am very involved with canine education and adoptions and feel I could learn a lot there. WHAT A GREAT PLACE TO EXPERIENCE… HOPE I WIN!!!

  10. DOGS,DOGS,DOGS….WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO SAY?!! To be surrounded by wounderful canines and helping them live full and happy lives….a dream come true.

  11. I love your show it shows that all animals are not bad. Keep up the good work maybe one day I’ll get to see what ya’ll do in person. I have 3 dogs 2 are chihuahuas the other one is spitz/fiest. They are my babies. Keep it up

  12. As a dog lover with two of my own, I would love very much to come visit and help at Dogtown. What you do there is more than words can express. Without you the dogs in need wouldn’t have hope. Thank you Thank you Thank you! Keep up the good work!

  13. Hello I’m a animal lover of all kind’s. I would love to get to come there to see all you’ll do to help all the animal’s. So thank’s for giving me the chance to get to come to your beautiful place. thank you’ll

  14. Thanks Dogtown for taking care of the unwanted and homeless animals. I am a member of PETA and it does my heart good to see caring people like yourselves helping these animals especially the ones that are helped to become adoptable pets…If I ever get out west I would love to stop by and see your wonderful facility in action….again thanks to everyone at Dogtown USA….

  15. PETA!? If you love pets, and care for homeless ones, PETA is the LAST organization you should belong to joyce. It is a very scary, skewed organization whose founder needs some serious help. Nobody, and I mean nobody, in animal rescue supports or condones virtually anything PETA does or stands for. I truly encourage you to google their “work” on behalf of homeless pets.

  16. I am really amazed at what dogtown does for all these precious animals. I watch the show and even the repeats,right after dog whisper.I think that it’s great that they take in dogs that would be put down and with the Michael Vick dogs. I thought how could they rehabilitate such mean dogs, but I saw it with my own eyes. So I think that having this sweepstakes is a great way for people to see first hand or first paw how great these people and dogs are. Also it’s nice that natgeo is sponsering this wonderful experience.

  17. I wrote that natgeo was sponsering this sweepstakes, but I realized that petco is sponsering the dogtown adventure. So I wish to apologize to petco. I am such a big DOG LOVER and animal person, I would be so thrilled to be chosen for this experience.

  18. LOVE DOGS! work recue, do foser, volunteer at the shelter…take special needs dogs/cats. Would so love to learn more to help our furry friends.

  19. I have two dogs and I would much rather spend time with them.
    They are so much comfoat. Back in 04 I had stage 3a breast cancer and they were the best medicine in the world. They accepted me and never asked ten thousand question. They are god’s gift.

  20. I’m a Dogtown fan, my heart breaks when I see animal cruelty. Thank you for having the passion to save these innocent animals, by the end of the show I feel relieved people like Dogtown really cares. I live in East Tennessee and have picked up six strays. I live close to a garbage drop off station and people drop of garbage, cats and dogs. All my dogs were staving, infested with worms, fles and one had a broken leg. I can say right now they are all taken care of and loved very much. I would love to visit your facility, keep up the good work.

  21. Tried to enter the sweepstakes on this date 5-29 at 5:20pm EDT
    There was a problem with the “provider” box. The dropdown did not work nor was one able to enter by typing anything in the box. The entry therefore was not able to be completed and entered. Kept receiving a red message to enter the provider.
