Puppies for Parole Graduation
Missouri Eastern Correctional Center. Stray Rescue (a no-kill organization) provided the dogs to the inmates at the medium security prison to be trained for three months. The dogs were taught basic obedience and socialization skills by the inmates.
It wasn't easy for the dogs. Abuse and neglect left them without social skills which allows them to function in the outside world but these dogs were eager to learn. Each dog has graduated and is now ready to be adopted by a loving family.
Graduating dogs can be adopted through Stray Rescue organization in Missouri.
