New Leash on Life is a dog rescues at risk dogs from local Philadelphia shelters, than partners currently with two prison systems for a 12 week training program. In this time the dogs and the inmate handlers live and work together to be successful upon release and adoption. Our inmates are given life skills classes, dog training certification and work with a job support specialist that matches them with internship opportunities upon release. Our dog participants work hard day and night to pass their AKC Canine Good Citizenship Test at the end of the program which signifies their transition out of the prison and in to a loving home. Our program offers support for both our inmates and dogs who truly rescue each other.
