About New Leash on Life USA
New Leash on Life USA offers dog adoptions to Pets for Patriots members in the Philadelphia metro area and will help them find their new best friend. The organization rescues at risk dogs from shelters where they face near-certain death, and trains them in prison by inmates who live with the dogs round-the-clock for three months.
Both animals and people in the New Leash on Life program benefit from the unique relationship created during their training. Dogs in the prison program are socialized and trained to increase their adoption potential, and upon graduation go directly from prison to their new adopted homes. Inmates receive life skills and job readiness training, and many receive opportunities in the animal care field when they are paroled.
New Leash on Life USA welcomes monetary donations in support of their charitable work.
Adoption Fees Include:
Microchip for permanent identification
Flea/tick treatment (during prison stay only)
Free month of pet health insurance
Five-pound bag of dog food (if dog is from prison program)
Post-adoption follow up meeting to review training and answer questions
