Welcome to the Website of
Alachua County Animal Services
Prison-Based Dog Training Programs

Located in Gainesville, Florida, our prison-based dog training programs
pair adoptable dogs from Alachua County Animal Services with inmates
from the Florida Dept. of Corrections and the Alachua County Jail.

The dogs live with and are trained by the inmates for 8 weeks and learn the basic 
 skills necessary to pass the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen test.
The adoption fee is $40.00 and includes spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccines.


Ahhhh... The life of an adopted
