San Mateo County inmates train dogs for Humane Society (VIDEO)

San Mateo County minimum-security inmates are helping the Peninsula Humane Society train difficult dogs so they can be adopted by Bay Area families.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s office partners with the Peninsula Humane Society for an eight-week program called Transitioning Animals Into Loving Settings, or TAILS. The program allows inmates in a minimum security facility to train dogs that are deemed unable to be adopted.

Handlers from the Humane Society teach weekly obedience classes to help the inmates train their dogs. To date, 18 dogs have graduated from this program and been adopted by various families throughout the Bay Area.
