A Lifetime of Loving Care · Nurturing Shelter · Community Animal Education
In Puppies for Parole, selected offenders at the Northeast Missouri Correctional Center have the opportunity to become trainers to rescue dogs. Offenders teach dogs basic obedience skills and socialize them, making them more adoptable. By the end of the program, these dogs will also be kennel trained, house trained, and Canine Good Citizen Certified. Once the dogs have successfully completed the program, they are adopted through the Northeast Missouri Humane Society. For more information about this program, please ask the shelter staff.
