Average Reviews


New Leash on Life USA is a new generation, non-profit prison dog-training program that saves the lives of shelter dogs at-risk of euthanasia and gives incarcerated participants a chance for redemption. Additionally, participants who have been in and out of prison most of their adult lives will be taught skills they can use to gain productive employment. The New Leash program provides a range of services and supports that are designed to meet the individual’s unique needs and situation while building a culture of success and possibility. Its focus is to reduce recidivism and restore lives by providing the skills and opportunities that allow many formerly unemployable, repeat offenders to rise above poverty and become contributing citizens in Philadelphia. The New Leash model begins during incarceration with a dog training program that teaches practical life and social-emotional skills and extends to comprehensive case management upon release. Through this extensive approach, New Leash prepares men and women for a successful transition as they reenter society. New Leash on Life additionally offers a post-release program, offering transportation, group meetings and case management, paid internships, technology assistance, job application assistance, and much more.
