Unique Programs

Animal Protective League (APL) Pound Pet Foster Program: The prison, in conjunction with the APL, has a Pet Foster Program that accepts any animal, mainly cats and dogs. This program provides housing for these animals to get healthy. Once healthy, they are returned to the APL for placement or adoption. Since January, approximately 100 animals have been serviced. Some of our own staff have adopted these animals. Currently, we are housing five adult cats, four kittens, and twenty-five puppies.

Hunger and Food Center Donations: Our inmates raised vegetables that were donated to area hunger and food centers last year. This is a continuous program.

Expressive Art Therapy: This is a program which seeks to enable inmates to come to terms with varying emotions (frustration, anger, sense of hopelessness, inferiority complexes, etc.) using clay, collages, clowning and mime.
