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.
This program gives the dogs the skills that will allow them to be adopted to loving and caring homes. It also helps to give the inmate a productive new sense of home and newly trained skills to care for and train shelter dogs and better themselves at the same time. The benefits of this program 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.
