  • Introduction: Ever wanted to adopt a dog from our inmate dog training program? Here's your chance!

Marion County Animal Services' inmate dog training program, the FIDO Project will be at the Ocala Downtown Market for an adoption event. The theme of this class is the "Straynger Things."

Applications for these special dogs are accepted through our webpage, at the shelter, and at the event.

Adopters will be invited to the Marion Correctional Institution Work Camp for the graduation event on December 22 at 10 a.m. There, the new families will be able to meet the inmates who trained their dogs, will be given a journal that the trainer kept, and get to take home their new family member.
