New Leash on Life USA Dog rescue in Philadelphia, PA

New Leash on Life USA is a new generation, non-profit prison dog-training program that saves the lives of shelter dogs at-risk of euthanasia and gives incarcerated participants a chance for redemption. Previously “unadoptable” shelter dogs, many at the brink of death, now find loving forever homes. Additionally, participants who have been in and out of prison most of their adult lives now have skills they can use to gain productive employment.
