We would like to thank Dana Benbow,

our previous trainer, who has recently moved away, and welcome Linda Gregory, our new dog trainer for the Prison Program.

Our Prison Program began August 2015, when we placed several greyhounds

into the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility, Nashville, Tennessee.

The greyhounds live in the facility and their assigned dog handlers care for them, which includes feeding, exercise, grooming, companionship and training. 

Dana Benbow is our experienced dog trainer who works with the handlers and dogs each week.

This program benefits both the dogs and their handlers and lasts ten weeks. Afterwards, the dogs move into foster homes and are available for adoption.

MCGA is very excited to be a part of this program and would like to thank

Corrections Corporation of America, the Metro-Davidson County Detention Facility

and Mid-South Greyhound Adoption Option for their involvement. ​
