Paws in Prison is a unique program made possible by the Arkansas Department of Correction’s partnerships with Central Arkansas Rescue Effort for animals (CARE) and other animal shelters and advocate groups across the state.
Last year, hundreds of homeless dogs were euthanized in animal shelters. ADC’s partners rescue dogs, which are placed in the Paws in Prison program. Inmates, who have received instruction from professional dog trainers, work with the animals and teach them basic obedience and socialization skills to make them more adoptable.
This program saves the dogs and prepares them for adoption, while providing inmates new skills and opportunities to do something positive for the state while incarcerated.
Paws in Prison is a non-profit program of the Arkansas Department of Correction, supported only by private donations. Make your tax-deductible donations today and save the lives of dogs. Thanks!
