Alaqua’s Unconditional Love Program (ULP) rescues unwanted canines from neglect and abuse situations and uses inmate labor to train them with basic obedience skills with the goal of being adopted as companion canines. This program benefits both the animals and inmates, helping each learn special skills and regain their places in society. Canines demonstrating unique potential may be accepted into one of the numerous nationally recognized therapy programs thereafter.
The current dogs in the program will be graduating on Tuesday, September 12, at which point they will ready to be adopted and go to their forever homes. If you are interested in adopting one of these dogs, call us at 850-880-6399 today and fill out an adoption application by clicking here.
