Parole Puppies

The state prison in Maryville is starting a "Puppies on Parole" program.

3 dogs arrive this afternoon from the New Nodaway Humane Society's animal shelter in Maryville. 6 inmates will be assigned to train them and socialize the dogs. Chris Cline is a spokesman with the Missouri Department of Corrections and says working with the dogs sets the stage for making positive life changes for the inmates.
