Dogs in PA prisons throughout the state celebrated Valentine's Day in style!

SCI Somerset

SCI Somerset employees had the opportunity to participate in a kissing booth—staffed by the adorable pups from their Canine Partners for Life program! Employees could get a photo or personalized card printed for $2 or $5, respectively, with all proceeds going to CPL. The fundraiser raised $142! 

SCI Mercer

Meet the pups of SCI Mercer's Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs program! These 9-month-old dogs just passed their Canine Good Citizen test and are now moving up to the next stage of training. Great work to the pups and their handlers!


SCI Frackville

Meet Sam and Tucker, two graduates of Frackville's DAWGS program who now work for the facility. DAWGS rescues pups from shelters who have been harder to adopt and trains them in obedience and socialization skills.


SCI Laurel Highlands

Meet Gunny, the newest addition to the Laurel Highlands program! Laurel Highlands works with Canine Partners for Life to train dogs to become service dogs.
