Pets And Prisoners Get Second Chance
They may get an undeserved rap, but an Alachua County program pairs pound puppies with people who have a rap sheet, to change their image.
Imagine you want a dog, so you look for one who knows how to sit, stay, walk on a leash, is housebroken and good with kids and strangers.
Look no further than Alachua County Animal Services "Paws On Parole" program.
The two year effort pairs dogs with a work camp inmate for eight weeks.
During that time, the pups learn obedience training and the inmates learn life skills they can apply to a new career when they are released.
Dogs are adopted for 45 dollars each and leave the academy completely housebroken and trained.
