Kentucky prison donates doghouses built by inmates


SANDY HOOK, Ky. (WTVQ) – A Kentucky animal shelter will be getting new digs for its dogs, courtesy of some inmates.

The Little Sandy Correctional Complex recently donated several dog houses made by inmates to the facility to Tri-County Animal Rescue in Clearfield, Kentucky. The inmates used recycled wooden pallets to build houses for the animals at the shelter.

Tri-County Rescue is a low-kill animal shelter that accepts cats and dogs from Rowan, Bath and Fleming counties.

The prison also has an institutional dog program called “A New Leash on Life.”

The program pairs trained inmates with shelter dogs to prepare the animals to be adopted in the community.
