Canines With a Cause has been training dogs in local state prisons since 2014. The primary mission of our prison program is to prepare rescue dogs for adoption with a local military veteran or first responder in need.
CWAC implements a handler-training program to provide offenders with industry knowledge and vocational skills in line with programming expectations and requirements. CWAC provides all training, training resources, guidance and handbooks for each inmate to confidently train rescue dogs. We currently have programs Idaho Correctional Center-Orofino and Northern Nevada Correctional Center.
