George’s Second Chance

This is a multimedia story about the Second Chance Canon Adoption Shelter. This shelter takes dogs off the street and rehabilitates them. At the same time, this shelter is rehabilitating inmates, by giving them the opportunity to work while serving time in jail. This specific photo story is about George, and his relationship with his favorite dog, Vanna. George compares himself and the inmates to some of the dogs who are in the shelter. Humans lose their way sometimes and need the time to get back to zero. The dogs who have come into the shelter have also lost their way, as they have usually been abused.
