Shelter Dogs and Prisoners Given Second Chance

by Rachel Baker on August 23, 2013

Arkansas’ Paws in Prison has given inmates and shelter dogs another chance to be of use to society again.

The program pairs inmates with dogs rescued from kill shelters, and participating prisoners socialize the animals and teach them basic obedience skills under the guidance of professional dog trainers. Some dogs are even trained to work as service or therapy animals.
