So, now I can tell you about my new project at work!!! I am the project coordinator for a program called Phoenix Flight Dog Rescue.
We are going to be bringing dogs into my prison, and I can't wait! We are going to start with 5 dogs and 10 offenders with the hope of going up to 20 dogs and 40 offenders. We will be training the offenders to train the dogs, and then they will be adopted out by our coordinating rescue society.
I know in my heart that this will work, I don't know of a single program that has failed and there are a bunch of them out there. The only problem that I foresee is that we are trying to find funding for everything. Due to budget cuts the department will not be funding one tiny little part of this, so I have to find money for everything (even the food.)The only other issue will be (as always) peoples' own ignorance. We will be using dogs that have been rescued, and most rescued dogs in Misery come from fighting homes. So, you have all the people out there who believe that fighting dogs can't be rehabbed.
So... everyone think happy thoughts and positive blessings for me and my new baby, I really want this one to succeed!
