PAWS BEHIND BARS PRISON TRAINING PROGRAM

Paws Behind Bars is a training program wherein the inmate handlers are selected by the Director of the Program and trained at professional levels! The inmates and the Director of the Program meet weekly with our professional trainer and Adopt Me! Bluegrass Pet Rescue staff to successfully maintain the high standard of knowledge and training skills to turn a once homeless and unmannerly dog into a desirable adoptable companion animal!

Paws Behind Bars trained dogs learn basic social skills, manners and commands. Commands such as sit, down and "place" are incredibly useful to an adopting family! The dogs that are chosen to participate in this program are mostly from high kill shelters and picked by Adopt Me! BPR staff as being one that will benefit from the training process. Once completed with training, these wonderful dogs are available to the general public for adoption!
