2nd BARK program in full swing
We need your help
The BARK (Baylor’s Assisted Re-socialization for K-9s) program at Baylor women’s prison involves inmates caring for & teaching basic obedience skills to dogs from Kent County SPCA.
The program improves dogs’ chances for adoption, proves therapeutic for offenders A small group of inmates at the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution (BWCI) in New Castle have recently become dog caregivers, as a new program at the prison has residents working with dogs from the Kent County SPCA in an effort to help the animals become more social and learn basicobedience skills.
The BARK program lasts eight weeks for each group of dogs and is designed to improve the animals’ chances for adoption.
In turn, the dogs bring a new sense of social responsibility and optimism for the inmates who care for them.
