Doggoneexpress, Inc. has a program called “From the Big House to Your House” where inmates at correctional centers in Louisiana are given training to take rescued dogs from shelters in LA and train them. The offenders, also known as C.A.T.S. (Canine Assessment and Training Staff) work with these dogs and train them on general obedience skills. A select group of canines are trained to be therapy and service dogs for those individuals who need a specially trained canine companion.This is the first graduation class of trained canines at Louisiana Correctional Institute for Woman in St Gabriel.
