Saving the Lives of Veterans and First Responders with PTSD
March 2019  

Excerpts from The New-Life Times Newsletter!

Learn how being a part of the New Life program has changed the lives of inmates in these excerpts from CMC's newsletter The New-Life Times:
“I realized that for the first time in my life I was now responsible for another living being. Gregor is not going to be "my" dog, but for roughly the next two years he is my responsibility to love, care, nurture, and guide in his journey to becoming a full-access service dog. Gregor’s "job" one day is to become a companion dog; a helpmate to a Veteran or First Responder with PTSD, and my job is to teach him how to grow into that role.”
“Entering NLK9s as a Teacher/Handler created another opportunity of truth-seeking, making amends, restoration, and healing for me. All thanks to the gift of a twelve month old Duley Lab. With every passing day, I am learning to reconnect with my humanity.”
 -from Gregor and I (Reflections of a Handler) by NLK9 Handler: Osa Inthavong

Congratulations CMC Crew!

The inmates at the California Men's Colony created a volunteer recycling program to help cover some of the costs of their 
New Life K9's branch. A post from the Inside CDCR newsletter details how the money raised goes towards buying treats, toys, educational tools and grooming supplies for the dogs as well as video equipment to record training videos!
