Paws for Progress: Changing the lives of Polmont’s young offenders and Dog’s Trust dogs

Meadowbank Library, Thursday 9th October, 6.30pm - 8pm. FREE, with limited places.

Paws for Progress is the first prison-based dog training and rehoming programme in the UK. It has delivered a brighter future for the young men of Polmont HM Young Offenders’ Institution and their partner rescue dogs.

With professional guidance the students learn how to train and rehabilitate hard-to-rehome dogs. As a result, more than 100 dogs have found permanent homes and the young men have improved their social skills, learned how to work with others, gained qualifications and, in several cases, jobs.

Working in partnership with Dogs’ Trust, Fife College and the University of Stirling, Paws for Progress has changed lives. Please join the project  team and their doggy helpers, to learn more about their incredible work.

Free tickets will be available from Meadowbank library, or by phoning 01324 503870. Light refreshments will be provided.
