Meet Shaley

in training at the Green River Correctional FacilityAge: 1-2 yrs. Weight: ~50 lbs. Shaley is a beautiful girl, is quite active, and loves people! This dog is currently enrolled in the Death Row Dogs program and will graduate in January 2014. The Death Row Dogs (DRD) Program is a 12-week course with a specific curriculum designed for both dogs and inmate trainers. The program has two goals. The first goal is to save the lives of dogs. The second goal is to help individual inmates. The program is located in the Green River Correctional Complex (GRCC) in Central City, Kentucky. Each dog lives in a cell with two inmate trainers. Dogs are taught basic obedience, house training, crate training, and even some tricks. Before graduating, almost every dog passes the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen Test on their first attempt. The adoption fee for this dog is $200.00 and it helps to cover a portion of the dog's vetting costs and a 1 hour training session with dog behavior experts at Tri-State K9 University for the adopters. All PC Pound Puppies/Death Row Dogs have had a rabies shot, 7-way shot, Bordetella vaccination and been wormed. They are all spayed/neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. The adoption process includes the completion of an application followed by an interview. Click here to download an adoption application: Adoption Application. You can apply to adopt now, and if approved, you can attend the graduation ceremony at the prison in January and take the dog home with you the same day!
