ARGENTINA PRISON DOG PROGRAMS


Argentina is a leader in helping inmates change their lives by providing programs that bring about change. One of these programs is  Huellas De Esperanza, a wonderful program in the Argentina prison.

They are working to start several programs in their prisons, giving the inmates a chance to give something back to the community by training a service dog for the handicapped or saving unwanted dogs.

The program is operated by the Argentina Penitentiary Service and inspired by Dr Romero, a famous Argentina Veterinarian and humanitarian who also has a television and radio shows. 

What is unique about this prison program is the desire that the Argentina Government wants Huellas De Esperanza  to be a success, hoping many inmates return to the community to find a new and useful pathways for their lives because they learned something positive in this program that will help their lives forever. 


PROGRAMAS DE PERROS EN PRISION EN ARGENTINA

Argentina es líder en ayudar a internos/as a cambiar sus vidas desarrollando programas que traen aparejados cambios. Uno de estos programas es Huellas de Esperanza, un maravilloso programa en penales argentinos.


Están trabajando para implementar varios programas en sus penales, ofreciendo a los internos/as la oportunidad de devolver algo a la comunidad adiestrando perros de servicio para ser entregados a personas con capacidades diferentes o rescatando perros sin hogar.

El programa es llevado a cabo por el Servicio Penitenciario Federal Argentino e inspirado por el Dr. Romero, un famoso y humanitario Médico Veterinario Argentino quién también tiene programas de televisión y radio.

Lo que hace único a este programa en prisión es que el Gobierno Argentino desea que Huellas de Esperanza sea un éxito, esperando lograr que muchos internos/as regresen a la sociedad para encontrar caminos nuevos y útiles para sus vidas, porque aprendieron algo positivo en este programa que les ayudará en sus vidas por siempre.


I was presented with this honorary Title of "officer" of the Argentina Federal Penitentiary Service and I feel thankful for their kindness to me.
