As part of a recent cooperative effort between the Dakota Women's Correctional Rehab Center and Oreo's Animal Rescue in Dickinson, dogs awaiting adoption go to inmates within the women's prison, where they are taken care of 24 hours a day. Voeller is an alternate in the program and Bray is a primary caregiver for Lacey. (AP Photo/The Dickinson Press, Beth Wischemeyer)
