Puppies Behind Bars

Puppies Behind Bars is a not for profit organization that trains prison inmates to raise service dogs. One program within this organization is called DogTags in which inmates train puppies to become service dogs for soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. During their training the puppies live in prison with their incarcerated trainers. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society, rather than take from it.

If you didn't see Glenn Close on Oprah with the segment about the puppies then click on the link and see this wonderful reunion.

Vibram™, the leading provider of military footwear has teamed up with FetchDog™ to create the DogTags Chewy Shoe in honor of the sacrifices made by the military veterans who rely on Vibram™ products and to raise money to fund the DogTags program at Puppies Behind Bars.
The DogTags Chewy Shoe is made of all natural, non-toxic rubber from the same molds used to make the soles of military boots, and we've attached a sturdy mountaineering rope lanyard to make playing fetch fun. $2 from each purchase will go to the program.
