Pawsitive Partners Prison Program
In May of 2008, Monty’s Home received state approval to start its first Pawsitive Partners Prison Program (PPPP), in conjunction with a local correctional facility – the first companion dog prison program in Southeastern North Carolina!
The state generously provided funds to build kennels at the correction facility, BUT, Monty’s Home assumes all other costs associated with the program – veterinary bills, grooming supplies, food, toys, bedding, leashes, collars, treats – all expenses associated with proper canine care and training. This important program is totally staffed by volunteers and exists only THROUGH YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS!
After temperament evaluation and heartworm testing, trainers select dogs from a local shelter. They are then spayed/neutered and brought up to date on vaccinations before entering the Pawsitive Partners Prison Program.
Living at the facility with their specially screened inmate-trainers, the dogs go through a seven weeks training course. Inmates, under the guidance of Monty’s Home volunteer trainers, train the dogs in basic obedience and household manners. After graduation, the wonderfulness starts again for more shelter dogs!

When a Monty’s Home dog joins their forever home, he is current on heartworm prevention and up to date with vaccinations and spayed/neutered. In addition, he comes complete with his own crate, leash and collar, one-week supply of food and a training DVD for his new family.
