How far would you go to save a dog's life?

For years Greg Mahle struggled to keep the last of his family-run restaurants afloat in Ohio. When it finally closed, he was broke and unsure what to do next. Then a stranded van load of puppies changed his life forever.

Join journalist Peter Zheutlin as he travels with Greg from Ohio to the Gulf Coast on his Rescue Road Trips to bring hard-luck dogs from the Deep South to loving “forever families” up north, with the help of many selfless volunteers along the way. From Houston’s impoverished Fifth Ward – where thousands of strays roam the streets – and high-kill shelters in Louisiana, to joyous scenes of adopters embracing their new pups in Northeast, Rescue Road is full of heart: an inspiring story about the unique bond between dogs and humans, and how going the extra mile can make a life-changing difference for these loyal canines – and for all of us.
