Incarcerated teens bond with, socialize, and train shelter dogs for adoption. In turn, they develop skills needed to re-enter the community and are offered internships with Safe Humane Chicago.
High school students teach peers and younger children in disadvantaged communities about the humane treatment of companion animals, why animal abuse of any kind is bad, and how to be safe around dogs.
Collaborative Justice programs are partnerships of government agencies and community members that promote identification, arrest, prosecution, and effective sentencing of animal abusers. Check out DAWG Court Advocacy and our Attorneys Committee. In our Court Case Animals Program, neglected or abused animals get another chance at the good life.
