ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Department of Corrections is seeking dog supply donations.

Officials said this week they are asking residents for help with a program that allows inmates to care and train shelter dogs from the Animal Services Center of Mesilla Valley.

The animals get temporary housing and the inmates learn new dog training skills.

Officials say the department is in need of blankets, dog crates and food bowls.

The program is one of many aimed at training inmates with new skills.
