Providing fair, firm, consistent and superior correctional services for Arkansas

Available Dogs

Dogs that graduate from the Arkansas Paws in Prison training program are available for adoption. Our partner rescues handle all adoptions. Paws in Prison is partnered with many rescues and shelters across the state. For this reason, you will find there is no generic adoption form. If you see a dog you are interested in adopting, you will need to submit an adoption application on the rescue organization’s website. Each rescue has its own process and application. Please click the “more information” link under the dog’s photo to be redirected to the rescue agency the dog belongs to. Please contact our partner rescues for more information about the dogs listed and all adoption inquiries. 

Under each picture you will find the dog’s name, the rescue/adoption agency’s name, and the prison the dog is trained in. 

Our Animal Rescue and Shelter Partners:
