The One Year Anniversary of Paws on Parole
Today marks the one year anniversary of an inmate program that is being called a success in Alachua county. The Paws on Parole program has had five graduating classes and today's anniversary makes it six.
Mojo, Libby, and Tyson were three of six dogs on parole that were united with their families today after graduating from the program. The program teaches jail inmates to train adoptable dogs. At the end of the training course, the dogs are put up for adoption.
Spokeswoman with the Alachua County Animal Service said today is especially exciting for the graduates and their families because it's the first year anniversary of the program.
"I couldn't be happier this is so much fun, we've had a lot of inquires from other prisons in the state that want to know how to start the program just like this and all it takes is people with time, patience, a sense of humor and dedication to commit to these dogs," said Hynes.
The program starts all over again on Monday with a new set of dogs being paired up with a new set of inmates.
