Get your tissues ready! Film maker Amy Jackson is creating a new documentary chronicling the relationships between inmates and the dogs they are responsible for training through the Operation Second Chance program, a partnership between Sheriff Butch Conway and the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department and Society of Humane Friends of Georgia.

Also known as Jail Dogs, the program saves dogs from euthanasia, vets and trains them and then helps them find their forever homes. Most programs like this one take place in prisons, where the inmates are serving lengthy sentences, but Jail Dogs is the first of its kind to focus on a jail setting, which is marked by its high inmate turnover. Since the program’s start, over 217 dogs have been rescued from death row and adopted into forever families. 

Jackson’s documentary follows the story of Brauny Brooks, a jail dog who arrived at the lockup facility in awful shape. She said, “The inmates took such amazing care of him and got him really healthy. Today he lives with his Mom and doggie siblings in Kentucky.” We have a feeling the dogs in the Operation Second Chance program save the inmates as much as the inmates save the dogs from certain deaths, and we cannot wait to see this tearjerker of a documentary with a strong and powerful message: love heals.
