Welcome to the Website of
Alachua County Animal Services
Prison-Based Dog Training Programs
Located in Gainesville, Florida, our prison-based dog training programs
pair adoptable dogs from Alachua County Animal Services with inmates
from the Florida Dept. of Corrections and the Alachua County Jail.
The dogs live with and are trained by the inmates for 8 weeks and learn the basic
skills necessary to pass the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen test.
The adoption fee is $40.00 and includes spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccines.
Ahhhh... The life of an adopted
Paws on Parole dog!

Food, treats, training equipment, toys, grooming supplies, flea and heartworm prevention ...it sure adds up fast! Our organization is run entirely on donations from the public. We are always in need of various supplies as well as monetary donations to properly care for the dogs that we have in our program.

Our Wish List
Because all of our training is reward based we are always in need of training treats. Soft small treats work best. Some of the dogs favorites are; Zukes Mini Naturals, Cloud Star Tricky Trainers, and My Little Wolf.
Food dispensing toys are great for mental stimulation and exercise and the Kong Wobbler is one of our favorites.
Some of the other things we need are: a new laptop computer, crate mats, dog toys, notebook paper for journaling.
You can also donate through our Amazon.com Wish List
