These Inmates Are Paired With Abandoned Dogs With Hopes Of Giving Better Lives To Both!Ashley Maisano
Some prisons in the United States have created a program that pairs inmates with abandoned dogs. They are hoping they can change each other’s lives. Prisoners obviously have very little to be happy about while in jail and the rehabilitation they need to get on the right path isn’t always easy to achieve while there. Similarly, abandoned dogs are roaming the streets and often wind up at shelters where they’ll eventually be euthanized.
The idea is to allow the inmates to train these dogs in order to help them become more adoptable. In return, the inmates gain responsibility and trust and can learn a thing or two from these pups about love and self-worth, something prisoners lack.
