2010 WHY WE DID THIS.... 
West volusia kennel club, west volusia humane society & we help animals

The Pet Care is a $17+ billion dollar per year industry! The pet care and pet housing industry is flourishing in the U.S.A. and  jobs are available to trained people. The Tomoka Correctional Work Camp (Daytona, FL) atmosphere is the perfect setting for inmates to get supervised education in dog obedience training, kennel care and the upkeep while socializing and training the dogs.

The West Volusia Kennel Club located in DeLand, embraced Allyn Weigel’s idea to have Obedience Training of shelter dogs in a prison or jail setting.  There are many such programs that are in Prisons across the our nation.  At the 2009 “AKC Responsible Dog Owners Day” at Volusia Mall, Daytona,FL  Allyn met Tomoka C.I. Warden Steven Wellhausen, his Assistant Warden of Programs Ms. Gordon had personally experienced such a program at another Institution. After meeting with Ms. Gordon, Assistant Warden, Programs, Allyn asked the West Volusia Humane Society and Karen K Clark with WE Help Animals Incorporated to join the founding TEAM. The result is Prison Pups and Pals!  

In 2010, The West Volusia Humane Society did this to promote adoptions! The WVHS  was established in 1955, the facility went no kill in 1999 when Volusia County Animal Control decided to use only two drop off facilities instead of three. One in Daytona and the other in New Symrna. THUS, the WVHS’s government funding WAS DROPPED. The WVHS had to become creative with fund raising for the care of it’s many animals. FINDING WAYS to promote adoptions and fund raising became critical. HIRING A PROFESSIONAL WAS OUT OF THE QUESTION! This initiative will give the “West Volusia Humane Society” a venue for adoptions for their no kill shelter. Please go to their website to make  to make an online tax deductible donation.  www.wvhumanesociety.com

WE Help Animals Incorporated wanted this project to work for the reason of career training for inmates and dog adoptions. We know of people that went through the prison system and their reactions were so positive, they wanted to help in some way. Promoting dog adoptions through this project is what we wanted to do for a few years. Allyn asked Karen K. Clark for her assistance.

WE Help Animals Incorporated Board Members and Advisory Board  have experience in many business fields, promotions and networking connections are happy to partner with this initiative. They will be providing goods and services such as medical supplies, photography, graphic design, web site and it’s maintenance, promotions,  consultation, community interaction, communications, and networking support.
                      
Tomoka Correctional Institution in Daytona, FL has teamed with the “West Volusia Kennel Club for instructors and to coordinate the program in other words, train the inmates to become trainers themselves. To complete the team, they called upon the West Volusia Humane Society, and  “WE Help Animals, to help both pet adoptions and inmate career education in this growing field.

Animals entering this program are required by State of Florida’s  Correctional System to be spayed or neutered, current with vaccines, rabies, bordetella (kennel cough) an be Micro Chipped and healthy. The plus* for THIS PET ADOPTION PROJECT is that the animal is properly BASIC obedience trained. The dog will have all of the above mentioned, and  have a valuable training and the AKC Canine good behavior certificate.
