(WKYC) Chardon High School shooting survivor Nick Walczak went to prison today. Not for a crime, but to speak to inmates interested in joining a service dog training program.
W.A.G.S. 4 Kids, Working Animals Giving Service 4 Kids, is expanding into the Grafton Correctional Institution. W.A.G.S. 4 Kids is a charity organization that provides service dogs to disabled children in need.
Walczak received his dog, Turner, from the organization last year.
Training a dog can be expensive, that's why W.A.G.S. 4 Kids utilizes prison inmates. Their first program started at the North Central Correctional Complex in Marion. Inmates cared for and worked with the dogs 24/7.
