WHAT IS THE POWDER PALS PROGRAM??
Powder Pals is a cooperative program between New Hope and the Oregon Department of Corrections Powder River Correctional Facility in Baker City, OR in which inmates train dogs to correct behavioral deficiencies, including dogs that have been neglected and abused.  This gives an otherwise difficult-to-place dog, often facing euthanasia, a chance for a future and placement into a loving home.  
Program costs include acquisition of infrastructure to house and handle dogs, medical and temperament testing, training materials, and daily operating expenses.  The program is operated by volunteers, including experienced dog trainers who volunteer to teach inmates dog training, handling and leadership skills.
