(PIX11)-- A new documentary, Dogs on the Inside out Tuesday follows the relationships between abused rescue dogs and prison inmates caring for them as they work toward a second chance at a better life.

Filmed in a Massachusetts prison, Dogs on the Inside follows the relationships between neglected and abused stray dogs and prison inmates, as they each work together toward their second chance at a better life: a forever home for the dogs and a positive life outside prison for the inmates. It is a story about newfound trust and love for both dog and man in the unlikeliest of places.

After a devoted team of animal rescuers delivers a group of abandoned rescue dogs from the southeastern U.S. to a Massachusetts Correction Facility, inmates train and prepare the dogs for adoption and a safe and loving new home. Connected by their troubled pasts, the dogs learn to have faith in people again while the inmates are reminded of their own humanity and capacity for love and empathy.

The film is available on digital VOD -- iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu,
