This foster application is SPECIFICALLY for dogs in our Pawsitive Change Prison Program.
The Pawsitive Change is a progressive and intensive rehabilitation program, which matches death row dogs with inmates inside California State Prisons. Our goal is to reduce inmate recidivism by providing them a viable skill, while at the same time saving dogs lives. The program is 14 weeks long, during which the inmates work towards vocational accreditation and the dogs towards their Canine Good Citizen Certification. Both man and mutt will use the skills gained in this program to better their lives and stay out of prisons and/or shelters-- respectively.
We need fosters for these dogs for 3-4 weeks in between shelter and prison. The fosters are important in order for us to get to know the dogs personalities and to get the dogs vetted and fixed before going into the Pawsitive change program.
