VIENNA (WSIL) — Dogs that were once in jeopardy of being euthanized are now headed to their forever homes, thanks to a program in Johnson County.

The six dogs were part of the SWATT Dog Program at Shawnee Correctional Center. Offenders at the center teach the dogs basic commands and socialization skills.

On Wednesday, the dogs graduated from the program and went home with their new families.
