Prison Inmates Caring For Shelter Pets

Who would ever think that prisoners and pets would go together? One shelter in a small town in Louisiana has a select group of prisoners that care for the sheltered pets around the clock. It has been said that hardened prisoners turn soft as they care for the dogs and that it is a great therapy for both prisoners and dogs. This shelter came about after a grant from the Humane Society and is built right on the Dixon Correctional Institute campus. Please watch this heart-warming story!
