Atlanta Journal / Constitution Inspired Series - Canine CellMates 

Canine CellMates takes shelter dogs and places them with inmate handlers at the Fulton County Jail who give them the love and obedience training they need to recover from abuse and neglect. The result: The dogs find new homes, and the men find new ways to contribute.

In this inspiring video series presented by Mercedes-Benz, we get to know the unsung heroes of the Atlanta community. Mercedes-Benz supports over 50 grassroots organizations, which are positively impacting local neighborhoods, and is proud to call Atlanta home.
