ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Seven dogs from Stray Rescue will be headed to prison for a three-month stint at the Missouri Eastern Correctional Center in Pacific, Mo. The program is called “Puppies for Parole.”

This will be the first time Stray Rescue has taken part in the “Puppies for Parole” program. Director Randy Grimm says it’s a medium security facility with non-violent offenders.

They will live in cells and be cared for by the inmates. Grimm says that they will also be working with their trainers to ensure their program.

“Stray Rescue believes in second chances—not just for the dogs, but for people, too,” he says.

After completion of three months, the dogs should pass their K-9 good citizenship program and be available for adoption.
