GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A collaboration between the Humane Society of West Michigan and Kent County Juvenile Detention brings young men and homeless dogs together in a program that helps both grow together. Project B.A.R.C. begins when the dogs leave the shelter to live with the youth in the detention center for three weeks. The dogs receive training and rehabilitation which helps makes them more adoptable. The youth learn responsibility from caring for the dogs, as well as empathy and compassion. This unique collaboration is a 2012 Connecting With Community Award nominee. Eva Aguirre Cooper shares their story.
