The dog whisperer had a show on this topic. It seemed like a win-win situation. The dog's got love and training and usually ended up being adopted by a family. The inmates learned compassion for the animals and earned a sense of accomplishment by knowing they were doing something to add good to the world
My hubby works in a state prison here and they have a program where the inmates train assistance dogs. its a pretty intense program. when they are trained they are given to a blind or deaf person. pretty cool program for them and everyone.
