(Cushing)- Film and news crews from OETA were in Cushing at the Cimarron Correctional Facility doing a story about the Parole A Pet program at the prison. The story will air tonight on OETA (cable channel 11) during The Oklahoma News Report.

The Parole A Pet Program matches animals from the Cimarron Correctional Facility for training, and later adopting the animals out to area families.

Prison officials say the program has been good for the inmates, while Humane Society volunteers say it increases the animals chances of being adopted.

The story was featured recently on KUSH Radio, The Tulsa World Newspaper, and now on OETA.
