Newest 'Paws On Parole' Class Looking For New Homes
Published November 9th, 2013
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Paws on Parole has a new class of dogs and they're almost ready for graduation, and then adoption. At a meet and greet event today, the dogs and potential owners were visited by two special guests.
Sheriff Sadie Darnell and County Court Judge Phil Pena took some time today to play. But Darnell did more than just show her support, she paid the adoption fee for each dog in the current class. Coordinators say that was an unexpected surprise. "This is the 30th Paws on Parole outing and we're so excited that the Sheriff came out to see us and her and her sister had paid for the entire class. I mean how warm and loving is that, that our sheriff in our community supports our program number one and loves the animals number two" said Hilary Hynes with Alachua County Animal Services.
Sheriff Darnell says she's certain these dogs will be adopted, judging by the success rate of the program so far. "Each dog that has been through the program has been adopted and you have a huge benefit for families that are getting a well-trained obedient dog" Darnell said.
Since all of the dogs have been paid for, Hynes says there's only one more thing left to do, "all we need is someone to fall in love with these dogs."
And thanks to Sheriff Darnell, you can take one home for free as soon as they graduate. Visit their website, pawsonparole.com for more information.
