The Animal Farm Foundation (Aired On October 13 & 14, 2018)

You may never have heard about canine discrimination, but you will learn a lot
from this fascinating interview with Stacey Coleman and Nicole Juchem of the
Animal Farm Foundation. The Foundation, which started in the 1980s as a refuse
farm for horses, it now is a nationwide advocate for pit bulls and a trainer and
supplier of service dogs. It specialized in training dogs for very specific tasks,
such as opening doors. Among its programs are training K9 dogs for police
departments, dogs that learn to detect drugs or hidden weapons. The
Foundation works with inmates at Rikers Island Correctional Facility, where
inmates socialize dogs and teach them basic canine manners. The dogs are
recruited from animal shelters. If the dog turns out to be resistant to training, the
Foundation finds a suitable family to adopt it.
