Paws for Progress CIC is a non-profitable organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people and animals. Working across a range of settings including schools, prisons and the community, Paws for Progress develop and deliver services to help people most in need of support.
Our flagship project is our prison-based rescue dog training programme at HMP & YOI Polmont, established in 2011, which continues to develop and expand, benefiting both the young people and rescue dogs involved.
At Paws for Progress the well-being of both the people and the dogs is equally important, and we treat both with kindness, respect and empathy.
“The dogs—they change the way you think and the way you act. They trust you, it’s that mutual bond. You think you’re helping them but they’re helping you too.” Student, Paws for Progress.
