Rescue Dogs On The Inside
Every year approximately 2.7M Cats and Dogs are euthanized a.k.a killed at animal shelters around the country, so when a local dog shelter decided to partner with a North Central Correctional Institution in Massachusetts, people were a little shocked.
Taking the an abandoned stray rescue dog and putting them in jail with a criminal initially didn’t really seem like a good idea, but in reality putting the animals that have been through some tough time in the same room with humans who’ve been through their own personal hell provided the much needed connection for both of them.
This is the story of how humans rejected by society found friends who don’t judge and who themselves know what it’s like to be mistreated and hurt. If it weren’t for those inmates who took them in, it was more than likely that most of the dogs would have been euthanized.
