Pups, Prisoners, & Patriots
Tonight’s special guest is a representative from the Those Left Behind Foundation
A couple of shows ago, we discussed an amazing program during our News of the Weird and Wonderful segment. The program is called Pups, Prisoners & Patriots, and they save dogs from high kill shelters and take them up to Lovelock Correctional Center. There they spend 14 – 16 weeks with the prisoners while they are trained to Canine Good Citizen Standards. Once they are done with their training, the organization gives the dogs to Veterans (or first responders) FREE of charge to act as their Assist dog.
While in prison they are also trained to retrieve pill bottles, push panic buttons and retrieve blankets. The program not only saves the lives of the dogs, but it also changes the lives of the prisoners involved to help them become a better individual and to learn a skill for when they are paroled. Most importantly it provides an Assist dog to a needing Veteran that they do not have to pay for.
