"Behind the walls of correctional institutions, inmates find a renewed sense of purpose through working with rescued animals. Both groups face isolation and rejection, but when their paths merge, they often give each other hope, as one prisoner becomes the salvation of the other"
For many inmates training dogs, relating to an animal that has seen more downs than ups is not very difficult. The bond between a human and his dog is one of the strongest. Any dog-lover will tell you that. In exchange for affection and attention, a dog will provide you with true unconditional love and loyalty. But what about the dogs who have been forgotten, who have never been taught that a human can be kind? A shelter dog with an unknowable past can often be the very best companions. But, training them to love and trust takes patience and a very special skill set.
By adopting a Cuffs & Collars dog, you are saving the life of a shelter animal who may not otherwise have a second chance. Secondly, you have the advantage of bringing a well trained dog with basic obedience skills into your family. The program is therapeutic for prison inmates. It helps them to deal with anger, teaches them patience, gives them unconditional love and simply makes doing time easier. The inmates learn about daily dog care and positive dog training techniques from professional volunteer trainers.
