Mission

Canine CellMates works to provide a program that is as much about rehabilitation and the reduction of recidivism as it is about saving shelter dogs. The goal is that each dog graduates and goes into a loving and forever home, and men that have evolved while in the program, and supported upon their release, go on to live productive lives without further incarceration. In addition to providing relevant programming inside the walls - to include resume writing and interviewing, budgeting, personal development, creative development and other important skills, CCM assists the handlers post-release. Incarcerated Men and Shelter Dogs are rejected by Society. In this program, we strive to help both be free of the bonds of incarceration, and go on to a fulfilled life of love.

Canine CellMates

Canine CellMates is a program of rehabilitation for incarcerated men, and shelter dogs. Dogs that are selected from the county shelter move into the jail with inmate handlers, who care for, train and socialize them. The ultimate goal is that each dog graduates and goes into a loving and forever home, and men that have evolved while in the program, and supported upon their release, go on to live productive lives without further incarceration.
In addition to providing relevant programming inside the walls - to include resume writing and interviewing, budgeting, personal development, creative development and other important skills, CCM assists the handlers post-release, with clothing & toiletries, food, Marta cards, housing referrals and job leads.
Our financial needs are many - dog necessities, such as food and treats, collars, harnesses and leashes, beds, shampoo and grooming items, and veterinary costs. In addition, we provide uniforms for the handlers, and in-jail volunteers, and supplies for in-jail programming. Outside the jail, we pay for necessities that include covering the cost of emergency housing as needed.
Incarcerated Men and Shelter Dogs are rejected by Society. In this program, we strive to help both be free of the bonds of incarceration, and go on to a fulfilled life of love.
