Leader Dogs for the Blind Prison Puppy Raising Program

Prison Puppies pairs Future Leader Dogs with model prisoners who have demonstrated they can be trusted to provide 24/7 care to a puppy for one year. Prison-raised dogs are more likely to successfully become a Leader Dog than those raised in a home setting. Prison Puppies places about 100 puppies per year with inmates. Inmates who are raised a puppy have a greatly reduced rate of recidivism. Many express pride and gratitude for the chance to give something back to society.

    These organizations should consider taking as many dogs as they can from animal shelters – a win win for everyone.

    Awesome! I think cooperating prisons with animal shelters would also be a great idea!

    Awesome – The goal should be to train shelter dogs until no more dogs have to be euthanized.

    Warden McKinney seems like a good man, a stand-up guy. Really, many of these guys do, & I wish them all luck.
