New Prison Dog Training Program in Philadelphia

I'm filming a documentary about this program New Leash on Life USA and a segment is being used in a competition to raise money for them (none for me). If their entry gets the most votes they can win $250,000 in support. I wanted to share this video with you all in case anyone is interested in voting (we could use the help): DoGooder Awards – Philly In Focus

I will def vote when I'm next on my computer. Have to get onto Facebook.

I think these programs are terrific for all--dogs and inmates.

Having a Golden (Hogan) that went through such a program out in Ohio I know how much they can help a dog have a much better chance at being adopted.

That was a very good video clip. I voted.

It's a program to train dogs from Resuce Groups and area Shelters basic obedience so they have a greater chance of being adopted.

My state has several of these programs, wonderful programs, win win for the Rescues, Shelters and prisoners.

There is a Women's Prison by me that raises puppies to be law enforcement dogs- Bomb and Drug detection- I think!

ha trouble with the DoGooder website

I tried several times to login using Facebook account with no success. So I created my own account and couldn't log in with that either. If they fix the bugs, I'll be glad to vote.

I checked out your FB page for the prison program--looks great.
