Meet Kimmee!! Kimmee is a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix – her coat is the most enchanting mix of white w/ dark sprinkles and brown points. Her eyes sparkle with lively fun, and her ears - well, you can't forget her ears!! They do want they want, which is usually something delightfully silly. Her personality is a match to her captivating looks. Kimmee is highly energetic and fun loving, and seems younger than the 2 years her records indicat es - she is still very puppy-ish and playful. She is a perfect 33 pounds, and won't get any bigger. She loves to play with humans and other dogs. She is a super smart girl, and is learning at a very fast pace - as long as there is no butterfly to catch her attention - lol!

If active is your lifestyle, and tons of fun, with lots of laughter, describes your kind of dog, then Kimmee may be the dog for you! 

Canine CellMates dogs are trained in items similar to the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. They learn basic obedience and commands such as sit, down, stay, etc.  If you are interested in adopting Kimmee, please fill out an adoption application at www.caninecellmates.org, and email it to adopt@caninecellmates.org.

About Canine CellMates - Atlanta Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine CellMates is a jail dogs program that operates out of Fulton County Jail, in Atlanta, Georgia. The mission of Canine CellMates is to establish a continuing partnership between Fulton County Animal Services, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office and Fulton County Jail, and Canine CellMates to rehabilitate inmates housed at Fulton County Jail and homeless dogs from Fulton County Animal Services through a Good Behavior Incentive program. We want to give the inmate a productive new sense of hope and newly trained skills to care for and train shelter dogs, and give the dogs the skills they need in order to become adopted into and spend the rest of their lives in loving and caring homes.

There are many programs across the country that are all slightly different, but with one important common thread - dogs which were otherwise subject to being euthanized are saved and given a new and better chance. The inmate handlers get to learn responsibility in caring for a living creature, accountability in working towards a goal, and are able to experience unconditional love and positive physical contact in an environment where those are not possible.

The incidence of violent outburst in prison and jail facilities where these program are in place has shown a dramatic decrease, sometimes as much as 50%. Recidivism rates have also shown marked improvements. The Atlanta metro area has one of the highest recidivism (or re-offend) rates in the country, around 70% within the first 2 years after release. In Gwinnett County, over 300 inmates have gone through this program to date, and only 6 or 7 of them have since re-offended, which is roughly 2.3%.

This is a program that has a huge ripple effect in the community, and that’s why we are so excited that this program launched in Fulton County Jail on June 3, 2013. We are already seeing amazing changes and invite you to be part of improving lives - both canine and human!
