CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Seven dogs are getting a second chance at life thanks to some inmates at the Chatham County Sheriff's Office.

The dogs and three inmates graduated from the ninth class of Operation New Hope. The program allows the sheriff's office to take dogs from the Humane Society of Greater Savannah and train them so they can be placed in loving permanent homes.

It also gives the inmates a sense of responsibility because they are the sole provider for the dog.

"He's just my best friend that's all. He's out here to be a better dog. I'm out here to be a better man," said Jeff Oliver, an Operation New Hope graduate. "He just needs someone to love him and he loves attention. If someone doesn't give it to him, he's going to get it. He will find you."

The program is run completely by donations. No taxpayer money is used in the program.
