Puppies in prison

In partnership with the Department of Corrrections, the Trust operates two prison programmes at Auckland Regional Women's Correctional Facility, Wiri, Auckland, and, at the men's prison at Spring Hill Corrections Facility, Waikato, Auckland. Since 2008, when the women's prison programme was launched, many of our dogs have been raised and trained by selected prisoners.
