Correctional Facility Programs
About the Program
Currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our correctional facilities program matches dogs with groups of human participants for an 8-week residency at jails or prisons in New York.
The dogs live with the participants and receive 24/7 care and attention. A certified professional dog trainer works closely with the groups to provide the dogs with daily care, companionship, training, and socialization.
For both the humans and the dogs, the program provides love, hope, and healing.
