Men incarcerated at MTC’s Giles W. Dalby Correctional Facility in Post, Texas are a part of a program that provides dog collars and leashes to the nearby Post Animal Refuge Center (PARC).

“I like the program,” says inmate Jaime Navarro-Sanchez, “because it makes me feel positive about doing something good for the community…and makes me feel productive.”

The facility’s hobby craft coordinator explained his vision of the program.

“The idea was for us to not just make ordinary collars, but to step outside the box and let them be creative, and come up with whatever design they felt was awesome.”

The men’s efforts fulfill the refuge center’s mission to see their rescued pets adopted and is a part of the Dalby facility’s desire to make a difference in the community.

“Without the help of the Giles W. Dalby Correctional Facility,” says Janice Plummer, a volunteer at the PARC, “we would not be where we are.  They’ve been supportive of us and our entire community.”
