Who We Are

Go to to see our adoption fees and requirements. Paws in Prison receives rescued dogs from area shelters and puts them in prison for 3 months to be trained by inmate trainers. They live inside the prison, learn to sit, stay, down, potty training, crate training and a few tricks for fun! The dogs are all spayed/neutered, up to date on their shots, microchipped, heartworm negative and on preventative before they arrive for their 90 day prison sentence. APPLICATIONS ARE REQUIRED AND ARE NOT A COMMITMENT TO ADOPT AND ARE INTENDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY so that we can see if the dog you are applying for will be a good companion for your family.
