Heeling Hearts of NM – a dog rescue program combined with the Women’s Prison of NM
PB & J Family Services, a 501c3 non-profit entity, has also provided a program, Heeling Hearts, at the New Mexico women’s prison in Grants NM where dogs are rescued from the Cibola County shelter and placed into the loving care of participating women in the prison. Here the dogs receive the love and attention they have lacked, as well as helping the women, many of which have lived a life of abuse and addiction, how to love once again – and sometimes for the first time in their life.
Heeling Hearts participated in the annual NM Humane Society’s Doggie Dash & Dawdle 2010 whose goal is to gain support for the dogs at the shelters within the state.
I volunteer with this program. If you would like more information or are interested in adopting a dog, please contact me directly. My contact is in the upper right corner of this site.
Here is a slideshow showing the booth provided by Heeling Hearts.
