In the United States alone, as many as ten million animals enter shelters each year and millions must be euthanized due to lack of space. Explore.org, a brand new concept that combines philantrhopy, travel, and learning embarks on fact-finding missions to identify potential grant recipients and document the great works of non-profit organizations through films and photography.
In this video, Explore speaks with Jo-Anne Dixon, the Executive Director and Medical Director of the Animal Shelter of Wood River Valley — the first “no kill” shelter — in Hailey, Idaho. The video explores how the shelter staff rescues, protects, and finds homes for abandoned dogs and cats.
