CANTON — Jeffrey Beri, founder of the animal rescue group No Dogs Left Behind hopes to build a $3.5 million dog rehabilitation facility on 16 acres in the town of Canton at the site of the former Maple Ridge Kennels.

Mr. Beri arrived in Canton on March 1, and is beginning to make the site suitable for dogs he rescued in Afghanistan, which were recently kept near Toronto, Canada.

Many, Many, Many thanks to Mr. Beri for the wonderful non-profit he has created to help so many innocent, at-risk dogs. Canton is very fortunate to have this rehab facility, and I hope its people will welcoming and many will volunteer to assist.
