Witness Protection Program for Dogs?the daily dish
The Justice Department's Witness Protection Program is a way to protect witnesses whose lives are in danger, usually from reprisal for their testimony. To stay safe, witnesses are given brand-new identities, abandoning their old lives totally. It's a harrowing last resort. The Witness Protection Program for dogs is much sunnier. Instead of hiding dogs in danger, it gives new lives - and new hope - to dogs that already have made it through danger. Watch the video below to see how Phoebe the Pit Bull was saved from near death.
