Miss an hour, miss a lot…:eek:
On another note, just last night we saw a tv show about a woman who started a rehab program for female inmates and dogs at her local prison. The inmates took full responsibility for the dogs and were required to take classes in order to learn how to properly care, and learn the proper menthods and procedures for rehabilitating the particular dog they care for. It looked like a wonderful thing for both the dogs and the women involved. Since you are an educator and have connections with your local detention center, do you think this is a program that might benefit the inmates there and help some dogs to be rehabilitated?
We also wondered if there might be government grants or funding where you could create a non-for-profit 501c corporation to help offset the costs of starting such a program and assist you with your rescue efforts.
We have a local trainer that started something similar to this program with our main state prison. The prisoners train and rehabilitate the dogs and once they are ready for their forever homes, one of the local animal shelters then adopts them out. It is a very successful program.
