Pen Pals - Fetch a CureFETCH-a-Cure’s Pen Pals. Through a partnership with the Virginia Department of Corrections, inmates at several Virginia correctional centers train and socialize rescue dogs with the guidance and instruction from two professional dog trainers.  The Pen Pals program not only lowers the rate of euthanasia in Virginia’s city dog shelters, but also provides life skills to inmates.  The Pen Pals program promotes inmate rehabilitation while increasing positive communication and interaction between correctional center staff and the rest of the inmate population.  We have an urgent need of people willing to taxi dogs in the Charlottesville, Albemarle area.  To learn more and support our cause, visit our website.
