    Animal Shelter of the Week: Episode 67 – Second Chance Canine Adoption Shelter

    Animal Shelter of the Week: Episode 67 – Second Chance Canine Adoption Shelter

    Second Chance Canine Adoption Shelter started with a dream of former Onondaga County Executive, Joanie Mahoney. Over five years ago, former County Executive Mahoney began the process of working on a large project that would bring together inmates and homeless dogs. She configured a team of community leaders that would help see this vision come to light. The brilliant idea of pairing up inmates with shelter dogs was a sure way to give second chances to both the inmates and the dogs! Upon the end of the dog's training, they are placed up for adoption. Since opening in 2015, over 400 dogs have been adopted and 140 inmates have gone through the program!
