Anni was just another abandoned hungry dog in the park before she got some unlikely help from some grateful animal lovers. On Wednesday, she was adopted after a long road to recovery landed her under the care of inmates.

Similar schemes should be mandatory in all prisons. Wish they'd do this over the Pond too. It's a win-win situation for everyone.

Not all prisoners are bad guys, and it must be very hard for them to give the dog away.

Good scheme -some children grow up without animals in their lives and they miss out learning and caring for something other than themselves -they teach us so much,-the inmates might for the first time learn the love and devotion an animal can give and the dog gets a home .

This is such an inspiring story of a dog getting a second chance as the prisoner who trained her so that she could be placed in a loving home! There needs to be more prison programs like this where prisoners can get in touch with their "better selves" and their souls to make such a difference for other sentient beings! It's a win-win situation for both dogs and people! The prisoners get a wonderful opportunity to feel, once again, like productive members of a society and help wonderful dogs that would have
been tragically put down without their help! Great Christmas story, Dianne...thanks!

This is a great program- it obviously helps the dogs, but I am sure the prisoners are helped too, by gaining empathy and being unselfish enough to give up the dog once training is over and an adoptive family is found.

Why isn't this program in every single prison in the US? There is absolutely no downside to this. If anything good can come out of a prison, this is it.

I'm with Janet, this program should be in more prisons, it's good for the dogs and the inmates, with happy endings! Thanks Dianne.

Good for everyone who helped this pup. At one time, prisoners in my state were helping the homeless pets. Joe Arapio, the Sheriff that illegals hate, has been heading this cause. I don't know if they still do it. I'll have to check on this.
