Paws on Parole Graduates 21st Class of Adoptable Pups
They're hanging up their capes and heading home to new families... the Paws On Parole dogs graduated this morning in "super" style.
The Avengers have been trained by inmates at the Gainesville work camp for the past eight weeks. Program volunteers, Department of Corrections officers and adoptive families came together to celebrate the big day.
Sheriff Sadie Darnell also came to see the dog she personally sponsored for the program, named "Thor."
The handlers and the dogs showed off for their adoptive families and proved their skills in training exercises, which was a much anticipated moment for families like the Barberette's.
It was a bitter sweet day for the handlers who have spent every day with the dogs for months. But as these dogs headed home... the 22nd class of paws dogs moved right in for their training.
So far the program has a 100 percent adoption rate.
