Pen Pals Animal Shelter, a nonprofit, no-kill adoption center on the grounds of Dixon Correctional Institute in Jackson, will have dogs available for adoption during the Angola Prison Rodeo in West Feliciana Parish from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Sunday during October.

At DCI, Pen Pals is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and features a large selection of cats and dogs, which are all vaccinated and spayed or neutered.

The shelter operates entirely through donations and volunteer veterinary services. Adoption fees are $40 for dogs and cats, and microchips are optional and cost $10.

Donations of animal food, treats, toys, beds, blankets and monetary contributions are welcome.
