DAWGS in Prison celebrates four years

Christy has found pen-pals in many of the new dog owners. They write updates to let the folks at the Forestry Camp know about the fate of the dogs they have trained and the new lives in their “forever” homes.”

Col. Dave Delmonico adopted Skye two years ago. The dog has now traveled around the world with Delmonico’s Air Force family.

“I just wanted to touch base and let you know that Skye had a little adventure, but it has ended happily,” Delmonico wrote to Christy. “We were forced to leave Venezuela due to political reasons and were not allowed to travel with Skye.

“She was always in good hands with friends in the embassy, but she was a true ‘political prisoner’ for a month. Anyway, she is now happily reunited with us and settling into her new digs in Arizona. Hope all is well with you and your staff. Thanks for all you do.”

The success of the program has also proved that for some, one dog is not enough.

Guy and Marnie Willis from Navarre were present last week to adopt Greyson, who also happened to be his graduating class’s top dog.

The Willises previously adopted Mandy, a hound who was a survivor of abuse and neglect.
