Help a dog. Help a person. Help all of us be safer.
Purchase a 'Go Get Joe' t-shirt for $14.99 ($17.99 for XXL and XXXL) and $5.00 will be donated to Canine Performance Sciences Puppies in Prison Program. Canine Performance Sciences at Auburn University pairs puppies with inmates who assist in the training of those puppies. Using Vapor Wake Technology™, puppies are trained to detect explosive materials, in particular, those being transported bodily. The inmate training program has proven hugely successful and is now placed in 6 prisons.
One inmate who was introduced to his puppy began to cry. When asked why, he explained....He hadn't touched a dog in 40 years....
Now's your chance to help a puppy, help a person and help us all....Purchase your 'Go Get Joe' shirt now. You can choose to add to your gift by pressing the donation button below. Thank you for this most important purchase. We appreciate you!
