Paws and Stripes Program
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — I would like to thank the Neighbors of Suntree for their gracious donation of $2,000 today to the Brevard County Jail Paws and Stripes Program.
The donation was made to help cover the costs of feeding the Rescue Dogs that participate in the program that is fully funded through donations from the community.
The Paws and Stripes Program is an amazing program that takes Rescue Dogs and partners them with female inmates at the Brevard County Jail.
INMATE NURTURING AND RESPONSIBILITY
The program teaches the inmates about nurturing and responsibility and takes the dogs through obedience training and socializing with other pets.
The neighbors of suntree donation was made to help cover the costs of feeding the Rescue Dogs that participate in the program that is fully funded through donations from the community.
The success of this program is the direct result of the amazing efforts of Corrections Deputies Soto and Twigg and the continued support of the community.
Please join me in thanking the Neighbors of Suntree for their tremendous donation and support.
Once the dogs complete the training they are placed on our website BrevardSheriff.com for adoption.
