"If it hadn't been for the canine program in prison, I don't believe I'd be here right now. I believe in my heart, I'd be dead".
     -Brenda Hawkes, Former Inmate

K-9 Corrections is a story about women inmates and the dogs that are changing their lives behind prison walls. This story provides an intimate look at the lives of incarcerated women and their relationships with the dogs they care for while in prison. Through innovative rehabilitation programs such as `Freedom Kennels' and `Pawsitive Directions', inmates from all backgrounds are given the opportunity to transform unruly dogs into adoptable loving pets, or simply care for dogs boarding at the prison kennels. The unconditional love and companionship of the dogs allow the women to learn compassion, gain self-esteem, and develop a sense of accomplishment on their often rocky path to rehabilitation.

Set in the only two Canadian women's prisons with canine programs, the Nova Institution For Women in Nova Scotia and the Burnaby Correctional Centre for Women in British Columbia, this documentary captures the unique caring relationship that develops between inmates and the dogs they come to love.
