Hero Dogs: The Story of Puppies Behind Bars

On this episode, we talk to Gloria Gilbert Stoga, founder of 'Puppies Behind Bars' (PBB), a very unique and special program that trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for our wounded war veterans and first responder heroes, as well as explosive-detection canines for law enforcement.

We also talk to Brian Andrews, an injured former first responder, as well as Heather O'Brien, a former inmate, who both credit PBB for helping them through their recovery and healing journey.

Brian, along with his son Zach and wife Lambeth, have been driving around New York City a few times a week to thank healthcare and other essential workers for their heroic service. Brian's son Zach created signs from spare posterboard to hang out the car window.

As they drive by, they blow the horn and scream, “THANK YOU” or something else that shows them appreciation for their heroic efforts.

Listen in to hear Brian talk about how his family is spreading hope and happiness to our pandemic heroes!
