The Society of Humane Friends of Georgia runs the Jail Dog Program in conjunction with the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office and SOHFGA pays for all expenses associated with the program.
The Sheriff and his staff provide the unit and supervision, screen and select inmates for the unit, and welcome potential adopters into the unit to visit or adopt dogs. SOHFGA provides all financial support for the program (no taxpayer dollars are spent), selects the dogs, handles the application and screening process for potential adopters, and supports the volunteer efforts by the trainers and others.
The following dogs are “recruits” who are available for adoption from the Society. Click here to donate online or for information on sending a check to support SOHFGA and the Jail Dogs program.
