Prison Pet Partnership is a non-profit organization located on the grounds of the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Gig Harbor. We rescue and train homeless animals to provide service dogs for persons with disabilities and operate a boarding and grooming facility to provide vocational education for women inmates. Our program benefits all involved — the animals who are given the chance to lead lives of service, the inmates who learn valuable skills so they may find gainful employment upon release, and the individuals with disabilities who receive well-trained dogs to help increase their level of independence.
PPP Needs New Computers!
Prison Pet Partnership has a new GoFundMe campaign to help raise $5,000 to purchase new technology including computers, printers, and software. No amount is too small to help. Every dollar donated gets us closer to being able to help more animals and more women gain valuable skills. Please visit our GoFundMe page to make a donation.
Camille Begins a New Chapter in Life with her cat, Luna
This month we shed happy tears as we said goodbye to Camille, a trainer and experienced groomer. With the tears, there were lots of hugs, smiles and waves as she walked out the front door of WCCW, released to join her husband and son. Camille left with her adopted PPP cat, Luna, who will help her with the transition back into life outside of prison.
Camille will be missed by her fellow PPP workers and all the dogs who were her regular groom clients. We, however will look forward to hearing about her next chapter and how the skills she gained while at PPP will help her find work quickly in the pet care industry. Without the generosity of many donors, the work we do to enrich the lives of inmates, homeless animals and the community through the human-animal bond and stories like this would not be possible.
We are rated as one of the top four kennels in the Puget Sound region! Watch video or visit komonews.com for full article.
