New Leash On Life
It was graduation day for a special group of dogs and the inmates who love them. A ceremony was held Friday for dogs enrolled in the New Leash On Life Program at Craggy Correctional Center. The program matches-up dogs in need of socialization and behavioral training with inmates who train them so they become adoptable. The graduation marks the completion of that training and the beginning of their new lives in forever homes. Animal Haven of Asheville provides the dogs for the 12 week program, along with food, toys, vet care and a trainer. The program has an adoption rate of 100%.
