TitlePuppies for Parole
Extended TitleMan's best friend gets a second chance with the Department of Corrections.
AbstractIn 2002, prisoners began training dogs for C.H.A.M.P. (Canine Helpers Allow More Possibilities), a program that trains and provides service dogs to disabled individuals free of charge. The prisoners were trained by certified trainers to work with dogs from local animal shelters in a humane way. George Lombardi, Director of the Missouri Department of Corrections, promoted the program which came to be called Puppies for Parole. The program has proven beneficial in many ways and in 2010 received the Governor's Award for Innovation. Three short success stories are included.
