We are incredibly grateful to ALL of our partnering organizations!
Lake Eric Correctional Institute (L.E.C., Conneaut, OH)
Through our Inmate/Dog Rehabilitation Program, the prison runs our highly adoptable pups through the training paces, which helps both our adopters plus the inmates. At any given time we have up to 7 dogs in the LEC foster program. The 14 men chosen for the foster program are always carefully selected from the population of 1,800 men incarcerated at the facility. They have all been formally trained on how to responsibly handle the dogs using nothing but positive reinforcement.
The maximum amount of time we would like to have a dog in the program at LEC is about 10 weeks so that we may responsibly place the dogs into their forever homes without them becoming too attached to the inmates or vice versa. The biggest benefit of this program is that, when the dogs head to their forever homes, they have basic training under their belts!
Since the program kicked off, we have had MANY successful adoptions!
How can YOU help?
Our rescue personally supplies the crates, food, toys, medications, etc., needed to properly care for our foster dogs. Any donations can be made via the "donate" button on the main page of the site. We use a minimum of 50 pounds of dog food per week at the prison. Grain free dog food donations are always needed in order for us to successfully sustain this highly beneficial community program!
Please feel free to email any questions about the program to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please let Amy know if you're interested in adopting one of our LEC trained dogs!

The center opened its doors in June 2013 to serve residents of western Lake County. Currently, an average of 325 families receive taxables and 246 receive food every month.
The center helps individuals who are struggling in these financial times by providing taxable items (i.e., toilet paper, personal care items, cleaning products), used clothing, household items, furniture, food, pet food and medical checks on a monthly basis.
