  1. I was an inmate at a Massachusetts State Prison and I had the privilege of being the handler of a WONDERFUL Black Labrador named Maple. Being able to assist in her beginning phases of training made me feel SO GOOD knowing that someone very special and disadvantaged would eventually get her! This program is wonderful …I hope Maple went on to perform great service!! I love and miss you “May-May” you are a true hero girl!!!
