|Tink, Husky mixed breed dog at MO Puppies for Parole|
Tink is young and nowhere near full grown. He is a bundle of enthusiasm. Turned over to the animal shelter because his family could no longer afford to feed him, he'd also never had any veterinary care.
If you have room in your life for Tink or a dog like him, surf on over to Puppies for Parole.
Puppies for Parole is a unique program made possible through partnerships with animal shelters and animal advocate groups statewide. Selected offenders have the opportunity to become trainers to rescue dogs in the program. Offenders work with the dogs teaching them basic obedience skills and properly socializing the animals, making them more adoptable. Once the dogs have successfully completed the program they will be sent back to their original shelter to be placed up for adoption. Last year in Missouri, more than 46,000 homeless canines were euthanized. Puppies for Parole hopes to reduce that number by producing loving, obedient, adoptable dogs
