The BCHS is an open-admission shelter that accepts all of Brown County's stray and homeless cats and dogs.

Prison Greyhounds

Many former racing greyhounds have their lives on hold in cages because of a lack of foster homes. Some nonviolent inmates in Indiana are ready to make amends. Together, we can impact both. Prison Greyhounds provides fostering, training, and socialization for retired greyhounds prior to their adoption into permanent loving homes. Nonviolent inmate-handlers find compassion, unconditional love and rehabilitation through their foster responsibility with these dogs. We provide regular coaching as the handlers gain teamwork experience, and an opportunity to explore a better way of living before being released into our community. In addition to fostering dogs inside an Indiana prison, we also promote the adoption of greyhounds that retired with racing injuries. These dogs [...]
