New Leash on Life USA is a Pennsylvania 501(c) (3) non-profit, prison-dog training program, dedicated to improving the life of inmates and saving the lives of dogs. We are one of the country’s most unique prison-dog training programs with a mission to save the lives of at-risk shelter dogs by placing them in prison and training inmates to socialize and care for them. As a result of the 12 week training programs the dogs work to earn their canine good citizen certificates, while inmates attend workshops on life skills and job readiness training. Many of our participants receive opportunities for paid internships in the animal care field when they are paroled, and as a result of the training these shelter dogs that were once considered "unadoptable" are able find loving forever homes. New Leash on Life USA believes everyone deserves a second chance, and we work to provide that chance by improving the life of inmates and saving the lives of dogs.
