I’ve always loved the idea of matching these two things which are always in over supply and bringing them together. Those two things are:
- the unemployed in need of work
- unwanted dogs in need of care
Prison programs with dogs are a really successful example of where it’s made a huge difference to bring people and animals together. I haven’t looked into the specifics of this idea (is it enough money, how does the selection work), but I love the experiment and concept. I hope it yields positive results to cause more interest in this area.
