Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin partners with two facilities creating the first jail program in Wisconsin that pairs otherwise unadoptable dogs with inmates who will work with and train them to be adoptable pets.
“We want to give want to give the dogs the skills that will allow them to be adopted and spend the rest of their lives in loving and caring homes. We also want to help give the inmate a productive new sense of hope and newly trained skills to care for and train shelter dogs and better themselves at the same time.” explains Brett Frazier, Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin Executive Director. “The benefits to doing this are impressive for dogs and offenders. This is a win-win for inmates and pets.”
Dogs that graduate from the program are available for adoption through HSSW's shelter. Please visit each program's page for a listing of available dogs.
