Stated Mission

Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains incarcerated individuals to raise puppies to become service dogs for wounded war veterans and first responders, facility dogs for police departments, and explosive-detection canines for law enforcement. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it.
