Dog lovers will have the chance to meet some of the furry friends who are helping prisoners train and socialise with dogs – helping both prisoners and their canine companions.
Meadowgreen Dog Rescue Centre is holding its annual sponsored walk on Sunday, June 3 from 10am.
Walkers can meet the dogs involved in the Rescue-Rehab project, where dogs are taken from the centre into HMP Norwich.
Under supervision, prisoners train and socialise with the dogs.
This project aims to break the chain of reoffending and train the dogs so they can be rehomed.

Michele Neave, Rescue-Rehab project leader, said: 'Too often a rescue dog is too eager to find 'new adoptive parents'. They 'bark and bounce' whenever someone approaches their cage.
'Reggie, one of the current Rescue-Rehab participants, is a great example of this behaviour – but after a short period of training, he responds positively to commands and his amazing personality shines through.'
