After a brief hiatus, SCI Chester has welcomed dogs back to the facility in a new program with New Leash on Life! The program is focused on fresh starts for the #PrisonPups and their incarcerated handlers.

The first member of the pack is Pierogi, a pit bull mix with some training experience but in need of a more intensive program. He is training with one of Chester’s most experienced handlers as he awaits adoption.

Shortly after he arrived, Pierogi was joined by Chai, a pit bull mix who was surrendered to a shelter. Chai was only one hour from being euthanized when she was rescued and brought to Chester to train and wait for her forever home!
