Puppies Behind Bars

Puppies Behind Bars is an organization that may seem a little controversial to some, but actually can help both humans and animals alike. This organization brings dogs to be trained by people in correctional facilities. These dogs will eventually be given to war veterans as support animals, or to law enforcement to help sniff out drugs. This charity helps the prisoners by acting like a rehabilitation program, helps the dogs by giving them company and attention, and helps war vets and law enforcement by training their dogs. By donating to this organization, you can help keep it running and continue its practices. If you would like to donate please click here:
