Artwork made by inmatesSCI Laurel Highlands' puppy program, Gone to the Dogs, recently hosted an art competition with two units. The competition's purpose was to produce artwork to donate to Canine Partners for Life. Three activity employees participated as the judges with winners receiving soda.

CPL was unable to hold one of its usual fundraisers this spring due to COVID-19, so it transitioned to a virtual "pawction." Each piece of artwork by the inmates was available to bid on in the auction to help raised funds for the organization.

Laurel Highlands also said goodbye to Carl, a black Labrador retriever, who went back to CPL to continue in his journey as a full-service dog. He will be going through his second phase of training in hopes of graduating and being paired with a person with a disability and in need of a service dog.

Gunny, this yellow lab, is 5 months old and just passed his 5-month evaluation with flying colors!
