Paws on Parole Pups Are Out Again
Gainesville, FL --
This morning, adoptable dogs from two "Paws on Parole" academies met at the Newberry Animal Hospital.
Two of today's academy dogs were featured as part of the Alachua County Animal Services newest program, "Paws on Parole Unleashed!!"
The "Paws on Parole" program pairs adoptable dogs with inmates from the Florida Department of Corrections.
The dogs live with and are trained by the inmates for 8 weeks and learn skills for adoption.
"The Sheriff's Office and Animal Services have paired up, Sheriff Darnell really liked what we were doing at the work camp," Animal Services Officer and Paws on Parole Volunteer Michael Kirby said, "they thought it would be a great program to have at the jail and we've got some great staff out there helping with that program."
TV20's own Duke Carter even stopped by today's event to meet the academy pups.
The dogs will be out again Saturday, April 13th at the Town and Country Veterinarians & Pet Resort in Gainesville.
