Hounds of Prison Education (HOPE) (PA) Wish List
HOPE is a unique, life saving program that began in March 2005. To date, over 300 dogs have been saved through this collaborative program that partners animal shelters, rescues, correctional institutions, and entire communities.
HOPE currently works in conjunction with the PA State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill. This program pairs carefully screened inmates with shelter dogs who have been evaluated for their sociability for a period of eight to ten weeks. The inmates work together with a professional trainer, prison staff, and the HOPE team to provide the dogs with basic obedience training, socialization, and behavior modification. The dogs involved in the program graduate with a wealth of valuable skills that help give them a paw up on finding a home.
By the time the HOPE dogs are paroled, the dogs have become more confident, better behaved, and they are looking forward to starting a new life on the outside.
