Keefe Group Partners with Puppies Behind Bars

Article:
Keefe Group has recently partnered with Puppies Behind Bars and sponsored a puppy to be raised and trained by an inmate for a future career as a service dog for the disabled or an explosive detection canine for law enforcement.

Through this sponsorship, Keefe Group has enabled Puppies Behind Bars to provide the necessary inmate training to one of almost seventy puppies currently being raised behind bars. Each puppy not only affects the lives of their future caretaker by being the arms and legs for the disabled or sniffing office buildings, federal courthouses, tourist attractions, or jetliners for law enforcement, they also provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment to the inmate and help them prepare for life on the outside.

Puppies Behind Bars' newest initiative, "Dog Tags: Service Dogs for Those Who've Served Us" transforms the lives of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and allows veterans to once again live life as they knew it before going to war, enjoying simple pastimes and a sense of normalcy.

With Keefe's sponsorship, another puppy can positively affect the lives of everyone from the inmate puppy trainer to prison staff, law enforcement, and its permanent caretaker.
