Dogs to provide inmate therapy at this Long Island prison

On Long Island, canines are heading to prison.

But they haven’t done anything wrong.

It’s all in the name of therapy for the inmates.

The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department is tossing around the idea of creating a dog therapy program that would allow inmates to train and care for orphaned pets.

It would be at the county jail in Riverhead.

The woman pitching the idea, runs an adoption center in Port Jefferson and says the dogs will instill hope and possibly turn inmates’ lives around.
