Understanding the Program
We’ve created a close partnership with the Lake Erie Correctional Institution (LEC), that allows our highly adoptable pups to go through a training process with the inmates at the facility prior to finding their forever homes.
Currently we have 7 dogs in the LEC foster program at any given time, but are looking to expand with additional Business Sponsorships.
Out of over 1,800 inmates, only 14 men (2 men per dog), are chosen to participate in this unique program. They have been formally trained on how to responsibly handle the dogs using nothing but positive reinforcement.
The maximum amount of time we prefer to have a dog in the program is only 10 to 14 weeks. This period enables proper training, places each dog with his/her forever family as quickly as possible and opens up yet another opportunity for an abused, abandoned and neglected dog to be rescued.
Through your business sponsorship we have the ability to grow this program. Please help us help dogs who need us!
