We are reaching out to local businesses and organizations asking them to consider donating goods or in kind services to help us reach our goal of raising $40,000 to help continue the life changing work being done at Prison Pet Partnership.
Our vocational education program provides training for inmates, giving them job skills and self-confidence to find employment in the pet care industry upon release. With these skills and our job placement assistance, PPP boasts a 5% recidivism rate as compared to the average recidivism rate of over 30%.
We were thrilled to make our first match of a service dog and a veteran with PTSD, as well pair seven service dogs with clients with disabilities, helping their new partners lead a more independent life. PPP’s incarcerated program participants are currently training 13 service dogs to be placed in the coming year to help disabled partners as mobility or seizure response dogs. In addition, we rescue on average 20 dogs annually who are trained and placed in forever homes in the community as “paroled pets”.
Thank you for your donation consideration to our silent auction and dutch raffle on April 24, 2020. Your generosity helps us continue to make a difference in the lives of someone with a special need while offering a second chance to inmates and rescued dogs.
Prison Pet Partnership is a501c3 nonprofit that enriches the lives of inmates, homeless animals and the community through the human-animal bond.
Our mission allows us to grow in many directions, using our foundation of rescuing and training homeless animals and providing job skills training to women inmates. We continue to rescue, train and place service, therapy and companion animals, and also provide animal-assisted therapeutic visits to local convalescent centers, and help students improve reading skills by having dogs listen while children read aloud. We have boarding and grooming facilities to teach women inmates job skills, and we also help inmates write resumes, and practice interviewing skills. Prison Pet Partnership scouts for job opportunities in the community in which an inmate will be released, and provide support through job placement as she transitions back into the community.
