BLACK MOUNTAIN, N.C. — Two dogs are starting the next chapters of their lives after being taken from shelters and trained through the New Leash on Life program. The women who trained them are also getting back on their feet thanks to the program.
Friday night, the program celebrated the newest graduates, Granger and Pike, a pair of dogs staying for the moment at Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue in Fletcher, but who program organizers hope will soon find a forever home.
The program is a collaboration of the Swannanoa Correctional Center for Women and Charlie's Angels, hoping to find permanent homes for dogs that were likely headed for euthanasia by finding women inside the correctional center to train them into adoptable pets, at the same time giving women experience with a skill.
