Canine Leadership Program
The Canine Leadership Program is a partnership between the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department, Fort Bend County Animal Services, Fort Bend Partnership for Youth (a nonprofit), and the Houston Humane Society. The program focuses on finding permanent homes for dogs from Fort Bend County Animal Services while teaching valuable skills to youth from Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation.
The dogs chosen to participate in the program are from Fort Bend County Animal Services. Fort Bend Partnership for Youth assists in providing food and supplies for the program. The Houston Humane Society vaccinates, spays or neuters and provides heartworm preventative for the program dogs. Youth from Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation spend time with the dogs learning to train and care for them. They teach them basic obedience as well as a few cute tricks. At the end of the training period the youth assist in promoting the dogs for adoption to permanent homes.
