Fetch a Cure’s Inmate Program Reduces Euthanasia Rates

Posted by DogCancer.com Editors on January 29, 2024

Fetch a Cure is known for its veterinary financial aid programs, but it also helps shelter dogs and prison inmates in their local Virginia area.

Their Pixie’s Pen Pals program pairs inmates who need job training with shelter dogs who need behavioral training. A professional dog trainer helps the inmates gain meaningful life skills and better job prospects post-incarceration. The dogs get the training they need to make great adoptees.

The result is a better quality of life for everyone in the present, but also in the future.

NBC News Now profiled the program, and the segment is well worth a watch.
