While many dog-training programs are on hold throughout the DOC, some facilities have been able to keep going while adhering to COVID-19 protocols. Among the facilities are SCI Pine Grove and SCI Laurel Highlands—and both had some fun with St. Patrick's Day.

At Pine Grove, inmates decorated a backdrop complete with a rainbow and pot of gold for a St. Patty's photo shoot for the pups. The quartet (see above) of Capricorn, Leo, Virgo and Sagittarius are being trained through New Hope Assistance Dogs.

At Laurel Highlands, Bellevue, Mizzi and Grizz put on their St. Patrick's Day best to pose for their own photo shoot. This trio (see below) is trained through Canine Partners for Life.
