16th HART Graduation to Be Held at Wakulla Work Camp

WHAT: Media are invited to the 16th HART Graduation ceremony. The Heartworm Assistance Rehabilitation Training (HART) program brings together dogs that have tested positive for canine heart worms from Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center with inmates from Wakulla Correctional Institution, who obedience-train them while being treated. Graduating dogs are crate trained, housebroken, spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and micro-chipped.
WHEN: Thursday, February 12 at 9:00 a.m.
WHERE: Wakulla Work Camp- Visiting Park
110 Melaleuca Drive
Crawfordville, Florida 32327
WHY: Through programs like HART, the Department of Corrections is focusing on teaching inmates viable job skills that will lead them to productive jobs and law-abiding lives upon release.
