10 Months Of Giving: Our September Recipient, Arkansas Paws In Prison

10 months of giving

We're celebrating 10 amazing years of business here at Re-Bath of Arkansas! That's why we're proud to partner with KARK 4 News to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with 10 Months of Giving. Each month, you can cast your vote for one of four Arkansas non-profit organizations to receive a gift of $1,000 from Re-Bath of Arkansas throughout the remainder of 2016.

In September, we were honored to present a check in the amount of $1000 to Arkansas Paws In Prison in celebration of our 10 Months of Giving on KARK 4 Today. Paws in Prison is made possible through the Arkansas Department of Corrections (ADC) and their partnership with animal shelters and advocate groups around the state. Selected inmates have the opportunity to become trainers of rescue dogs in the program. Inmates work with the dogs teaching them basic obedience skills and properly socializing the animals, making them more adoptable.

The group's website explains its benefits:

The benefits of this program are three-fold. The Paws in Prison program reduces the number of animals who perish by better preparing them to be loving, obedient, and adoptable pets. The program gives inmates the skills necessary to support successful rehabilitation and reentry - and ultimately improves public safety. At the same time, this is an opportunity for the inmates to do something positive for the communities of Arkansas. Since the program began December 8, 2011, ADC has seen a positive impact on daily interactions between inmates and employees, which ultimately improves security inside the prison.

Re-Bath of Arkansas, your local bathroom remodeling company, is honored to be able to give back to this incredible non-profit that gives back to our state, and we're proud to have them as our September donation recipient.
