The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Governor Rendell wants to solve two problems with one program: giving stray animals to prisoners.
Says the article, “The goal is to make a dent in the state’s burgeoning stray-animal crisis, while giving selected inmates responsibility for dogs – a pairing that has worked well in prisons that have tried it.”
The program would expand the state’s use of the Hounds of Prison Education (HOPE).
