Rutherford County NC and out of state - our New Leash on Life dogs now have forever homes in many states including RI, WV, MD, VA, TN, NC, SC, GA, and FL.
The New Leash on Life program is a program of the Community Pet Center (adoption/education). We rescue, vet, train and adopt 4 dogs every 8 weeks after matching the dogs to excellent forever homes. The program was started in 2006 and has adopted over 228 dogs since its inception. Two volunteer trainer/administrators screen dogs (from shelter, interventions, or vet rehoming) for acceptance into the program. The dogs live at the correctional center for 8 weeks being cared for and trained in basic manners by 8 inmate trainers. The dogs are evaluated for AKC Canine Good Citizens at the end of their training. We do it because it is a win-win-win situation for the inmates, the new families who get trained/socialized dogs, and most importantly, for the dogs who are saved.
Visitations are at the correctional center in Spindale NC on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-3 pm weather-permitting. We arrange visitors in advance by having you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that the meet and greet is being held that day.
