At Gwinnett County Jail, a second chance can mean the difference between a fresh start and the end of the road, for dog and man alike. Operation Second Chance is a groundbreaking program that pairs inmates with rescue dogs for training and rehabilitation that goes both ways. Since its founding in 2010, more than 90 dogs have been adopted into families from the program. And that number keeps growing.

The feels are for reals. Every prison needs to have a program with animals like this. Being around dogs and experiencing unconditional love changes people, and it would do so much good for the people in prison. It helps them grow as people, and it gives these dogs who would either be living on the streets or in a kill facility a home.
great, I find myself happily grinning while watching this report. this is a great idea!
This is absolutely lovely. I can't imagine how much it must hurt when they get adopted, but this program is clearly turning around the lives of both the dogs and the people. 
brilliant idea
This not only help the dogs for a second shot at life, but also the inmates to become a better person; more calm, and more loving.
