PUPP Program (Prisoners Uniting People & Puppies) is changing inmates and dogs lives forever.
The PUPP Program pairs some of the dogs with obedience issues with inmates for 12 weeks, and a professional trainer comes out weekly. There are two handlers per dog and the dogs stay at the prison for the entire time, learning, training and receiving love and attention.
These men absolutely love these dogs and the dogs love them! One inmate has been there over 40 years and hadn’t touched an animal in all that time.
Feedback we hear from officers and staff: “The yards that have the dogs are much calmer.” “Inmates in the program have a much higher camaraderie with other inmates.”
This program has been extremely successful for the dogs, inmates and the furever families.
