Angela Marcus interviews her longtime friend and former colleague, Rob Rosa. Rob is the Associate Vice President of Prison Programs for New Leash on Life, one of the country’s most unique prison-dog training programs. Their program is dedicated to improving the life of inmates and saving the lives of dogs. By pairing these two unlikely groups, they are saving the lives of at-risk shelter dogs by training prison inmates to care for them and socialize them to enhance their adoptability.
Inmates attend workshops on life skills and job readiness, and many receive opportunities for paid internships in the animal care field when they are paroled. Rob also shares his personal story - one that led him to devote his life to improving the lives of these often-overlooked pets and people. Tune in to hear all about this lifesaving program and “meet” Donna, one of the programs recent graduates who is now looking for a home.
