About Our Rescue Group:We rescue dogs from local shelters and enroll them in a 10 week training program in one of our Prison Dog Programs at local correctional institutions. Upon graduating from the program, the dogs are lovingly adopted into their “fur-ever” homes. In addition to saving the lives of wonderful shelter dogs, our program helps rehabilitate incarcerated youth and adults as they learn key life skills, i.e. patience, and responsibility, which helps them become better individuals when they return to the community.
At our adult program located at the California Institution for Women, inmates are training dogs to assist Autistic children.
