I dont know if it is in Kansas, but I watch Cell Dogs on Animal Planet here in SA. The things those inmates do for those dogs is wonderful. They take the dogs that would otherwise be put down and retrain them into adoptable pets. They even train the dogs to be service dogs.

I personally think this is a wonderful thing, as it gives the prisoners an incentive, and has even turned a few around and taken them from being bad to good. A few have even said that being in the Cell Dog program has saved their lives. They even take the dogs to visit inmates in Segregation, and the inmates say that these visits to them, make the biggest difference to their days.

To those prisons that do run this kind of Program. Good for you. It is a wonderful thing that you do.

Please dont breed or buy while millions of unwanted pets die. Adopt a pet instead.
