TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State women’s basketball team will continue its community service work on Saturday, October 17 when they head to the Railroad Square Art Park in Tallahassee for the Paws in Prison Dog Walk.
The event is scheduled to get under way at 10 a.m. with the dog walk going until 1:30 p.m. when the silent auction portion of the event begins.
The women’s basketball team will be on hand around 12:30 p.m. to assist in the dog walk and sign autographs for fans.
Paws in Prison is the non-profit fund raising arm of a win-win program that places homeless dogs in correctional facilities where they are trained and socialized by prison inmates.
It is a fully self-sustaining program, where-by inmates are trained to train other inmates to prepare these otherwise unadoptable, `last-leg,’ dogs for new, permanent family homes.
