If someone can fix the Youtube link, I will be most grateful! Have tried several times to get it working.

Prison inmates are training dogs for wounded warriors in record time

Quote:
Prison time is hard time. Depending on where an inmate is locked up, they can spend anywhere from 21-23 hours a day in their cells, regardless of the severity of their crimes. Wherever possible, inmates who really want to get out are making the most of that time. But it turns out there is one job that is perfectly suited to someone with that much time on their hands: training service dogs for wounded veterans.


We need so much more of this kind of thing! Doing both a critical job for others but also getting a type of therapy for themselves, too.
