At the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail, they are running a programme that pairs the
inmates with rescue dogs. This programme benefits both the inmates and the dogs by teaching inmates how to train dogs as well as preparing the rescue dogs for adoption. Most of those dogs were on death row, lack skills, have bad tempers and would otherwise be euthanized. The inmates were led by a dog behaviourist in an effort to train and rehabilitate those rescue dogs for adoption. So far 8 such dogs had been trained and found a home at loving families.
