"New Leash on Life" dog training program

Through the "New Leash on Life" prison dog training program, offenders train dogs from local animal shelters and animal welfare agencies facing possible euthanisia to make them more adoptable.

Offender trainers work with the dogs for several weeks under the guidance of a professional dog trainer.  Dogs trained in the program have extrememly high adpotion rates and the offender trainers are learning marketable skills they can use to find employment after release,
