The Tortorella Foundation would like to welcome Rescue Dogs Rescue Soldiers to our family of Bear’s Angels. Through its program, Rikers Rovers, this amazing organization puts homeless animals together with selected juveniles at the Rikers Island Correctional Facility who train and care for them. The results are adoptions for the animals, and a sense of responsibility, belonging and peace for all. FOr more information on this wonderful program, visit www.rescuedogsrescuesoldiers.org
This organization’s work is lifesaving for both animals who are trained for adoption and inmates who benefit from having responsibility and interacting with a dog that gives them non judgemental, unconditional love.
