K9s For Warriors' Paws For Change Program Celebrates 3rd Graduating Class!
Even though K9s For Warriors is the Nation’s largest provider of service dogs for Veterans, they are helping others in need with their Paws For Change program. Paws For Change gives inmates the opportunity to train future service dogs. Once an inmate is picked by prison staff to participate in the program, the inmates get to spend three to four months training the rescued dogs.
The Paws For Change program is only about a year old and wouldn't have been possible with out the partnership with the Jacksonville Sherriff's Office.
