Redwood City, CA: The 14th annual T.A.I.L.S. program session canines and their inmate handlers will be graduating on Friday, May 10, 2013 at 2pm. T.A.I.L.S, which stands for Transitioning Animals Into Loving Homes, is a partnership between the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the Peninsula Humane Society.
Dogs with questionable adoption potential due to having come from poor living conditions, abusive homes or similar circumstances, live with inmates who are then responsible for their training, grooming, exercise, and socialization. Though Peninsula Humane Society / SPCA volunteers teach a weekly obedience class and monitor the dogs and inmates progress, the dogs are in the inmates care at all times outside of the weekly hour long class.
The graduation will run approximately 1 hour and take place at the Men’s Transitional Facility located at 1580 Maple Street, in Redwood City (behind the Sheriff’s Work Furlough building.) Whether you think you may be able to give one of these dogs the loving home they deserve or simply want to see what the program is all about, please feel free to attend the event and show your support.
