UALR Hosts First Annual K9's on Campus Event

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Paws in Prison service dogs were in college today.

The Criminal Justice Department at UALR hosted the first annual Canines on Campus event.

A professional trainer demonstrated the various skills of several of the dogs. The event gave students the opportunity to interact with some of the dogs and learn what paws in prison is all about.

"We wanted to help inmates give back to the community so we knew we'd heard about the profound affect training dogs and being with dogs have on person that are incarcerated," says Andrea Kirtley.

These dogs also work with military veterans and children with disabilities helping them with their traumatic situations
