Programs: Founded in 2007 RPSM has made a serious effort to effectively aid in the reduction of euthanasia rates at many animal shelters. In 2008, the RPSM Correctional Companion Program began. In a partnership with the Coldwater Prison Complex, RPSM endeavors to find homes for dogs in shelters that would otherwise be euthanized. Dogs selected for the Companion Program are carefully screened for temperament, trainability, and adoptability. They are fully vaccinated, spayed or neutered prior to enrollment in the program. Once they arrive at the complex, they are assigned to specially trained inmates who are responsible for their training and day to day care. Upon completion of the program, the dogs are ready to receive a canine good citizen certificate (CGC) and available for adoption into an approved home.

My experience interacting with the RPSM has been nothing short of inspiring and full fulling. To see the volunteer work they do to help rescue the pets of Michigan that otherwise would have been euthanized is heart warming and touches the heart of this animal lover! I have experience their generosity, patience and caring for over 6 years and have had a chance o be a part of each and every dogs life that has come through the program to be trained and adopted. To hear the success stories and see the changes in the dogs from the time we first see them to how happy and outgoing when they are done makes life seem a little more on an even keel. It gives us all hope that everything in this world does not have to be about the negatives. Keep up the awesome work you do guys!!!!
Thanks so much for your wonderful review of our program!!!
