HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Once a dog earns it "Canine Good Citizen" certificate, the chance for successful adoption increases, as does Karma Rescue's ability to rescue another shelter animal in its place.

Paws For Life brings rescued shelter dogs to live full-time with inmates at the California State Prison, Los Angeles County. Over a twelve-week cycle, inmates learn from Karma trainers how to train our rescue dogs for "Canine Good Citizen" certification. Paws For Life is California’s first and only program in a high-security prison involving inmates.

By promoting a pup, you support this special program and give these individuals a way to contribute back to society while helping a dog get a second chance at life.

DESCRIPTION

Help an extra-special group of Karma Rescue dogs find their forever homes by promoting one or more of these pups around town. These smart dogs are earning their Canine Good Citizen certifications as part of the "Paws For Life" training program.
