Pixie’s Pen Pals

Donate to Pixie’s Pen Pals

Enriching the lives of dogs, inmates, and adopters…

Through a partnership with the Virginia Department of Corrections, FETCH a Cure’s Pixie’s Pen Pals pairs inmates at Virginia correctional centers with homeless dogs from Virginia animal shelters. With the guidance and instruction from two professional dog trainers, the inmate handlers work to socialize and train the rescue dogs to prepare the dogs for adoption. The Pen Pals program not only lowers the rate of euthanasia in Virginia’s city animal shelters, but also provides life skills to inmates.


Pet Pals adoption fee: $275 Dogs 5 Years and Under, $175 for Dogs 6 Years and Up.
