I just saw a news story on this program and thought it was so neat. Just wanted to share with some other pet lovers.
It is a program that pairs inmates with shelter dogs for training in a 9 week program.

This sounds SO neat! I firmly believe that criminals need more options/assistance for rehabilitation and in someway I can’t think of off the top of my head I think this program would help this as well!

I love that these pups are getting trained so they have a better opprotunity to be adopted by a loving home. And that its at least a small way for those incriminated to give back to the community without necessarily being out in the public

Wow, I’m so glad they’re doing this for the offenders! Great great thing for both the offenders AND the puppies! Yay! 🙂

I think this is wonderful. I feel like people in prison need to have stuff like this to help with the rehabilitation process.

I have watched a few prison shows one being called “locked up raw” & some of the inmates had cats! One guy was SO sweet with his, he looked all rough and tough but with the kitty he was so gentle!

They made a movie about one of these programs years ago, it was a really touching story.

We have a local group that does the same thing. Our work always tries to donate money. Super awesome.

I love that idea – wish more states would adopt this!
