Friends of Paws in Prison is the 501(c)3 nonprofit that finances the Paws in Prison program! 
Serving Lockhart, Seguin, San Antonio, Austin and surrounding areas, Friends of Paws in Prison is the 501(c)3 nonprofit set up to support the Paws in Prison program in the women’s division of the Lockhart Correctional Facility. 

Friends of Paws in Prison supports the dogs and the inmates from entry into the program, through their training, dog adoptions and beyond. The female inmates learn how to train the dogs in basic obedience skills, but they also have an opportunity to learn intangible life skills such as patience, empathy, responsibility, trust, accountability and compassion.

Through your donation to Friends of Paws in Prison, expenses necessary to run the Paws in Prison program are provided such as pet supplies, vet bills and administrative expenses.  All Friends of Paws in Prison board members are unpaid volunteers.

If you have any questions about donating, email us at [email protected].
