Joey from “A New Leash on Life” seeking forever home 10-14-15


THIS PAST FEBRUARY, THE DANE COUNTY JAIL TEAMED UP WITH THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF SOUTHERN WISCONSIN FOR A NEW PROGRAM THAT BENEFITS BOTH INMATES AND DOGS IN NEED OF A HOME. MEREDITH BARACK JOINS US LIVE FROM THE FERRIS CENTER WITH AN UPDATE ON HOW THE PROGRAM IS GOING, AND INTRODUCES US TO ONE OF THOSE VERY SPECIAL DOGS. GOOD MORNING CHRISTINE… WE ARE GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU TO JOEY IN JUST A MOMENT… BUT FIRST WE’RE GOING TO CHAT WITH SERGEANT LORIE WIESSINGER… LORIE, THIS PROGRAM WAS STARTED ONLY 8 MONTHS AGO… THE INMATES HERE WORK WITH DOGS LIKE JOEY TO MAKE THEM MORE ADOPTABLE. HOW HAVE THINGS BEEN GOING SO FAR? THIS PROGRAM REALLY GIVES THE INMATES A PURPOSE AND A RESPONSIBILITY, AND THE DOGS GET THE TRAINING AND ATTENTION THEY NEED. NOW, ONE OF THOSE DOGS IS JOEY HERE… CAN YOU TELL US JOEY’S STORY? HE’S LOOKING FOR A HOME! AND IF SOMEONE WATCHING RIGHT NOW THINKS JOEY IS THE RIGHT DOG FOR THEM, HOW CAN THEY GO ABOUT ADOPTING HIM? VERY SPECIAL DOGS.
