They are all unwanted rescues from Lee County Domestic Animal Services. But we select these dogs, sometimes nurse them back to health, and build their trust and confidence while we train them. We become quite attached to these dogs in the months we work with them, and so do the inmate handlers. We want the best-matched home for these animals for the rest of their lives.
I live outside Lee County, can I adopt a Cell Dog?
Maybe. This would be left up to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services and their requirements for adoption.
I already know which dog I want from his picture on the internet. Do I have to come to the Correctional Facility to meet it?
No, you would need to go to the Lee County Domestic Animal Services.
The Cell Dogs enjoy a certain amount of celebrity. Their pictures appear on TV, the internet, and in newspapers. People feel like they know the dog from seeing his pictures and story in the media, but the photos might not depict the dog’s personality accurately.
