Operation New Hope

 

Operation New Hope is a partnership between the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and the Humane Society for Greater Savannah. The goal of Operation New Hope is to give dogs who need a bit of polishing and socialization a chance to be more successful in a new home and to reduce recidivism rates by giving inmates the opportunity to acquire new transferable skills and experience accountability.

Ninety-five percent of the dogs that complete the Operation New Hope program have found new loving homes.  And, the recidivism rate among ONH inmate participants is more than 75% lower than that of the general jail population.

$500 helps cover the cost of training an Operation New Hope class of 8 dogs.  Give a gift of second chances today.
