Colorado Correctional Industries, a division of the Colorado Department of Corrections, helps prisoners learn valuable job skills during their incarceration, including furniture making and agriculture. One of CCI’s most special programs, however, is their Prison-Trained Dog Program. The program takes rescue dogs and trains them for use both as family pets and as service dogs. The dogs also receive veterinary care. The program also accepts pet dogs for board-in training, which usually lasts about a month. Visit the program’s website to learn more about these special dogs, browse photos of available dogs, and more.
