Susan Jacobs-Meadows, executive director of Canine CellMates, said: "Most of these guys gave up believing that there was very much of value to them a long time ago. But when that dog loves them and trusts them that starts to change how they feel about themselves." One of the prisoners added: "The bond that me and Fred have – he came to a place where he was going to be put to death and I came from a place that was on the bad side. If Fred can have an opportunity to go to a good home and he can change, that makes me want to change the environment that I'm in. That means I can do better also."
