To view entire article (3 pages) please visit: Jailed Dogs \"A maverick program shines a light on a population of dogs the world rarely hears about and offers hope for others like them. When she started volunteering at SFACC in the mid-1990s, Corinne Dowling had no idea these \"custody dogs\" existed. Ironically, many custody dogs become some of the shelter\'s longest-staying residents, spending months there before the court decides their fate. In most shelters these dogs are kept apart from the adoptable animals, and regular volunteers, for legal and safety reasons, aren\'t permitted contact with them. \"

    What a wonderful and heartwarming and eye opening article. It made mom cry. She also never knew that these poor animals were being held like this and for so long waiting their fates. What a remarkable woman to take the time and effort to help these beautiful souls. Thank you for letting us know about this. We will learn more about this in the days ahead to help her help them.
