May 26, 2008 - PRLog -- Burlington, WA: PRISON DOGS: HOPE BEHIND BARS is an exclusive, engaging and compelling book about the life-altering prison dog programs that are changing lives and offering the most positive and hopeful rehabilitation programs ever developed in the American penal system—and now proliferating around the world. A new website, and blog, have been launched by the author to chronicle the project and offer program participants, dog shelters and others a central location that will help organizations and others connect with each other.

Amazingly, until now not one single American book has been published about the prison dog programs. Why? Because it is very difficult and time-consuming to do what this author has done. Kelley was able to gain the trust of prison officials, guards, government officials, program directors and inmates in not just one or two institutions, but dozens. She was able to do this by first developing a trusted relationship with the original founder, Sister Pauline Quinn.

This is the first book to give real voices to the power of these programs via the prisoners themselves, the prison staff, government officials and the recipients of the dogs. From murderers to drug dealers---their stories will evoke emotions, questions and of course, controversy. Stories quoting inmates in their own voice is a stark eye opener into the high levels of illiteracy found in prison population.

Kelley invites people involved in the programs or even those just interested in learning more---or contributing to the conversation--to join in the conversation at

The book has professional literary representation and more info can be found at the website, including author's contact information.
