Prison Pet Partnership Program

Prison Pet Partnership Program         Washington State Corrections Center for Women     PO Box 17       Gig Harbor, Washington 98335

The Prison Pet Partnership Program is a model for the nation in the area of the rehabilitation of female offenders within the criminal justice system in Washington State. It began in 1981 with an idea by Sister Pauline Quinn, where inmates would reach out to help others by training special dogs that would assist a disabled person.  Maximum Security Prison.

This was a cooperative effort among Washington State University, Tacoma Community College and the Washington State Department of Corrections, trainers and volunteers. This beneficial program helps inmates at the Washington state Corrections Center for Women learn how to train, groom and board dogs within the prison walls. The program was later incorporated in 1991 as a separate not for profit organization. Animals are placed regionally in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. More than 500 dogs have been placed with handicapped and disabled individuals and families since the inception of the program. Email ppppsd@yahoo.com   Website http://prisonp.tripod.com/

Animals w/ Disabilities-Need Foster Homes & Volunteers

Animals with Disabilities     PO Box 613    Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043

We are also seeking volunteers and foster homes! Please contact us. If you are interested in adopting a disabled pet, please contact us.  The welfare of these animals is our priority. Animals will only be placed in an environment where there is appropriate space, human contact, and a commitment to safeguarding and caring for the animal throughout its entire life.

The animals we encounter may have disabilities, but they don’t consider themselves to be handicapped. We haven’t met an animal yet that feels sorry for itself. As long as their special needs are met, they are happy to be alive and loved. These animals are devoted, energetic and happy! Generally, they are just like any other pet. In fact, disabled animals are inspirational and develop extra special bonds with their caregivers; they just might be the best pets you will ever have! http://animalswithdisabilities.org/

 League of Humane Voters of Washington State

The Mission of the League of Humane Voters®

In order to make a difference in the treatment of animals in Washington State we must be able to influence the political process. Being an informed voter is one way to do that. However, just as importantly we need to be able to tell legislators in each district that there are many of their constituents who feel that humane treatment of animals is fundamentally important to them. 

The League of Humane Voters is building a voter database and we need you as a member in order to make a difference. Your commitment is simply to stay informed through our website on the issues affecting the treatment of animals.  Mary Chmelik, State Director Phone: 360-880-7873  Please sign up today by  Emailing mary@lohv.org

PATH  Summer Program this week              5:30-9:30 pm (Link below)
Palouse Area Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) 

Washington State University        Pullman, WA 99164

PATH to Success is an equine assisted growth and learning program that is directed at healthy youth development. It was started in 2008 as an extension of the Palouse Area Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) program at Washington State University. Our program is conducted with the help of 4-6 gentle equine partners. 

The goal of PATH to Success is to improve children's well being by enhancing their social competence and ability to respond to common life stress.  See full details about 12 wk program. 

The joy of sitting astride and controlling a horse is an empowering experience for an individual with physical, mental and/or emotional disabilities. Horseback riding gives individuals with disabilities a chance to strengthen and relax muscles, increase joint mobility, and improve balance, posture, and coordination in a way that makes learning fun and interesting. Acquiring these skills fosters the development of confidence and self-reliance while riders learn the basics of caring for a horse. If you live in the area and would like to be part of PATH (as a rider or volunteer), please give us a call at (509) 335-7347. Thanks to Sue Jacobson People-Pet Partnership College of Veterinary Medicine
