I have a little obsession to confess to you all. I like ogling doggies online. Because my last attempt at dog ownership did not work out due to a little dog that bit my kids, I have felt sorry for myself that I am once again dogless. I realize, I’m totally pathetic. Anyways, when I am bored out of my gourd I like to look at all of the animal shelter websites, at the poochies that need a loving home. I am determined that our next dog will be one that we rescue from a shelter.
So somehow I stumbled upon the Idaho state Humane Society’s website. And I found out about this amazing program. I think this is such an awesome idea. For those of you who don’t click the link, basically it is a partnership program between the state correctional facilities and the humane society wherein inmates work to help train shelter dogs in basic obedience. Helps the inmates in being gentle, patient, etc… helps the dogs and ensures a happier adoptive family as well.
Why don’t they have partnerships like this going on all over the place? I just thought it was the coolest idea.
