Second Chance Greyhounds

I am so intrigued and delighted about this program. I first learned about it from GreytBlackDog. Here is what the program's website says about it:

"Second Chance Greyhounds is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization that has formed a partnership with correctional facilities throughout the state of Georgia to foster and train former racing greyhounds to better prepare them for life as a treasured pet. In return for the good manners that they learn, the dogs provide an outlet for the inmates to practice patience, learn responsibility and allow these men and women the opportunity to experience unconditional love for the first time in many years. It’s a very special partnership that benefits both humans and greyhounds."

You can learn more by visiting the Second Chance Greyhounds website. Truly a win/win situation for everyone involved. I'm sure bonds will be made and friendships will develop that will be important for both parties. Wouldn't it be greyt to see other states adopt similar programs? Spread the word my friends!
