Prisoners usually end up leading very difficult lives, with no caring about their concerns. They are full of anger and never fully recover from the experience. However, Pen Pals is starting to change the lives of many prisoners by giving them someone else to care about and have responsibility for.
Prison staff has seen some of the toughest men come out of their shells and become a little more friendly since they began caring for homeless animals. They train them and teach them manners, so they become more adaptable and eventually end up in good homes.
Many inmates said that it no longer feels like a prison, knowing that they are making a difference in another creature’s life, providing them with food and some quality playtime out in the yard.
