Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog on Animal Planet's Last Chance Highway website!

Sparkles' story was chosen to be featured on Animal Planet's Last Chance Highway website. "Forever Home" adoption stories were submitted by hundreds of adoptive parents and Sparkles' story was chosen as one of their top 10!

Last Chance Highway is Sparkles and my favorite show on Animal Planet. The show is an eight-part series that focuses on the monumental mission of a dedicated handful of rescuers. Shelly Bookwalter and Kyle Peterson fight to save soon-to-be-euthanized dogs.

Shelly Bookwalter

Each week, they organize a band of volunteers to take part in a unique mobile adoption campaign. Shelly leads an effort to find homes for strays and unclaimed shelter dogs and every week, Kyle and crew member, Lucas, climb aboard their big rig to transport more than 150 dogs thousands of miles to meet their new families. It's an exhausting ritual but one that finds homes for more than six thousand pets every year. Sparkles and I would like to thank Shelly Bookwalter, a true angel to thousand's of animals, for sharing Sparkles' story and for all that she does to help dogs, like Sparkles, find "forever homes." Thank you Shelly! We hope to meet you someday and shake your hand! Thank you Kyle for all that you do to help transport our furry friends to their new homes! Next time that you are in the Little Rock area, please let us know!

Last Chance Highway is on Saturdays at 8 pm EST.
