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.
If you would like to help, please consider becoming a volunteer, making a donation, or adopting one of our Paroled Pets.
Take a Virtual Tour of our Kennels
Kennel tours are conducted on the third Wednesday of each month from 10:00 am to noon. If you cannot make a tour date, this will give you an idea of what boarding, grooming, and a day in the life is like for your pet while visiting us. Take a peek!
Our Dog Training Program is Expanding
In addition training service dogs, we are expanding our program to include basic obedience and AKC Canine Good Citizenship certification. This will allow us to rescue and train more dogs from shelters and provide training to privately-owned dogs through our Board and Train program.
Camille Begins a New Chapter in Life
We shed happy tears as we said goodbye to former inmate Camille, a trainer and experienced groomer. Camille left Prison Pet Partnership with her adopted cat, Luna, who will help her transition back into life outside prison.
