Pets in Prison at Eastern State Penitentiary
New Leash on Life USA Family Weekend: Pets in Prison with Eastern State Penitentiary
Families discover unique stories about prison animals all weekend long! Kids hear about Eastern State Penitentiary’s most famous four-legged resident, Pep the Dog; participate in an animal-themed scavenger hunt; and find out how animals continue to play a role in prisons today.
Our VP of Prison Operations Rob Rosa will be giving a presenation about how a “prison dog training program” changed his life. Following the presentation, visitors to the historic site can meet some dogs from the New Leash on Life USA.
Family Weekend activities are included with admission. Tickets are available HERE online or at the door, subject to availability.
