PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office held a very special graduation at their jail Monday.
Three dogs that had been given to the jail by the Suncoast Humane Society for the Cell Dog program were graduated Monday. The program pairs up troubled dogs with inmates for a period of four months to train the animal and teach the inmates some life skills. The dogs, which are now fully trained, will be returned to the Humane Society for adoption to loving families.
The Cell Dog program is funded entirely by donations and run by volunteers.
